Inter-Organizational Information Systems and Business Management

Book Description

Inter-Organizational Information Systems and Business Management: Theories for Researchers highlights the most influential organizational theories and their applications in Inter-Organizational Information Systems. It also provides a vital resource for all business and IT professionals from executive managers to information professionals, as this book is based on theories that have been consistently tested and proven to be valid over time. With failure as an acute possibility when implementing any information system, theories that form meaningful conclusions and assist with the understanding of underlying causes of phenomena, as explored in this book, are a necessary first step toward success.
