This book examines the way in which IT affects organisations and reviews good and bad practice. For example, IT has the capability to alter power structures within organisations and hence their shape. By allowing workers to be geographically dispersed, IT may even bring about the demise of the head office block. The book reviews current research on the impact of information technology on organisations, provides practical guidance for more effective implementation of IT, and also contains case studies and illustrative material showing good and bad practice. This book is intended for undergraduates (first and second year) on HND/BSc business studies, computer studies, librarianship, information systems, accountancy courses at universities and polytechnics.
