Information systems and organizational analysis
MetadataShow full item record
The paper presents different approaches to the field of information systems (IS) research and organization theory. In the field of IS, much of what is written deals with practical frameworks for IS development and use, but there is also some theory building and causal models. In organization theory, there are several well known paradigms like rational organization models, institutional theory and transaction cost theory. In typical organization theory, little is said of the use of information technology (IT) and how this technology influences the organization. In the field of IS, a view of the organization as rational has been dominating. System developers have not been cultural sensitive, and this has resulted in many failures.
