Managing Information & Systems by Adrienne Curry
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The management of information systems continues to be a pressing strategic issue for business. With the pace of change in technologies increasing it is more important than ever for managers to be able to assess their information needs, and to identify the technology that meets that need, rather than starting with the technology and 'making it fit'. Focusing on the integrated understanding of the role of systems within the business, organizationally and strategically, this book demonstrates theory by including extensive business examples, and by ending each chapter with international case studies. Topics covered include: - the nature of organizations - management roles and functions - information as a resource - systems approaches - different information systems and what they can achieve - structural and cultural fit and information systems - change management and information systems - strategic business and information systems management. Combining readability with theoretical concepts, this book is suitable for both advanced undergraduate and MBA/Masters students.
