"A major contribution to the field..." ." Gordon B. Davis, Honeywell Professor of Management Information Systems, Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota, USA
" "This book is required reading for anyone who wants to understand how and why computers influence organization structure. It established a conceptual foundation for the field, and examines the particular characteristics of the tools computer systems provide and what organizational impacts they can be expected to have. The conclusions are sometimes counter-intuitive, but always convincingly argued." Lee L. Gremillion, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers, USA
"This is a superb source for people seeking to learn about organizational structure. Groth gives remarkable reasoning and interesting examples throughout the book. An exciting contribution" Kamar Singh, Project Manager, GE Aircraft Engines, Ohio, USA
Lars Groth addresses a subject of key importance and takes a fresh and innovative look at the ways to build and develop organizations with the assistance of information technology. Five major examples are used to point out the road ahead for those aiming to improve existing organizations with the help of new technology, as well as explaining some significant properties inherent in organizations and information technology. For the first time, the interplay between organization structure and information technology is thoroughly analysed in the context of established organization theory.
Through examination of existing models and taking into account the new possibilities offered by IT, this book will enable practising managers and consultants to look at their organizations and decide where the greatest, and least, opportunities lie. The book will also be highly relevant to MBA, MIS and Executive courses concerned with the relationship between organizations and IT.
