Journal of Global Information Management (JGIM) Volume 22, Issue 1

Book Description

John Naisbitt, in his book, Global Paradox, says "the bigger the world economy, the more powerful its smaller players." Big international companies are deconstructing themselves and creating new structures to survive in the new world order. Concepts like reengineering, rightsizing, network organizations and the virtual corporation are fast becoming the common theme in business practice. International strategic alliances are also on the increase based on the notion that no single company and no single country can alone be a successful player in the new global game. The organizational applications and managerial implications of these technology resources warrant a forum for the discussion of these issues. The Journal of Global Information Management (JGIM) has an important role to play in providing such a forum for researchers and practitioners to share leading-edge knowledge in the global information resource management area.
