Advanced Topics in Global Information Management is a series of books on advance topics in global information management (GIM). GIM research continues to progress, with some scholars pushing the boundaries of thinking and others challenging the status quo. Advanced Topics in Global Information Management, Volume 4 is a part of this series. In order to sustain any competitive advantage gained through the application of information technology, companies must continually seek improvement. They must employ environmental scanning techniques to determine what technology is available, be willing to adopt new information technology, and know what the competition is planning or doing. Advanced Topics in Global Information Management, Volume 4 addresses these important issues.
