Electronic Globalized Business and Sustainable Development Through IT Management

Book Description

The need for the collaboration and exploitation of synergies is crucial in a world where traditional business practices are reconsidered, economic activity is performed in a global context, and new areas of economic development are recognized as the key enablers of wealth and income production. Electronic Globalized Business and Sustainable Development Through IT Management: Strategies and Perspectives provides fresh ideas on how IT and modern management can contribute to societal and economic objectives, and the significant role of IT for global challenges and international collaboration. This book aims to bring together academics, researchers, entrepreneurs, policy makers and government officers to contribute to the debate on sustainable development and strategic management through Information Technology.
