    Strategic decisions to be made by Strategic Information systems in uncertain environments are considered as the main concern of organizations to achieve differentiating advantages. Architecting such a Strategic Information System (SIS) in which strategic decisions are made continuously can be well performed by employing an axiomatic design approach. The main advantage of axiomatic design approach relies in its potential to determine basic constituents of an agent based SIS. People may decide differently in the same situation not because they are logical but because they sometimes decide emotionally. Regarding emotional characteristics of human being, architecting an SIS based on emotional agents has been proposed in a model. The model contributes in strategic decision making using axiomatic design theory. The main advantage of employing axiomatic design theory is to consider critical points such as emotional decision making and flexibility which results in agile SIS.
