Socially Responsible IT Management based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
There have been many side effects of information technology. Societies have become vulnerable to new types of security threats. The privacy of individual citizens is easily compromised. Trash dumps are becoming filled with computer junk and dirty recycling operations have cropped up around the world that endanger people and the environment. People that use computers extensively can suffer from sever eyestrain and physical pains because ergonomics is so often ignored. In many organizations well-educated professional information technology workers have been forced into sweatshop conditions of long hours and often unpaid overtime. This is all happening because so many individuals, corporations, and governments do not understand the consequences of the widespread use of information technology. Socially Responsible IT Management guides people on how to get a grip on information technology and mitigate these undesirable and unhealthy consequences. This book is very focused on issues that impact today¿s IT environment and solutions to address contemporary social issues. In addition, readers do not necessarily need to be seasoned IT managers to understand the social responsibility issues or take steps to improve their company¿s approach toward IT management.
