Managing with information technology

Springer-Verlag, 1993 - Business & Economics - 284 pages
The increased availability of information technology has not been matched by an increased understanding of how to use it. One response to the problem has been the creation of "hybrid" managers, who combine a knowledge of the new technology with an understanding of the area in which it is being used. Richard Ennals and Phil Molyneux work in one such hybrid field, Business Information Technology, which combines the ideas and experiences from numerous traditional disciplines. Managing with Information Technolgy offers a unique approach to this important area, in that it bridges the conventional divides between private, public, and voluntary management. Produced as a collaborative effort, it brings together the ideas and experiences of people in academica, industry, education, and the community sector. The contributions cover 6 main areas: the fundamentals of business information technology; information systems and IT strategies; artificial intelligence and knowledge-based systems; hybrid managers; knowledge-based training systems; and human-centred systems. Managing with Information Technology offers a broad-based, critical evaluation of the role of information technology.
