Book: E-Business Strategy, Sourcing and Governance
Publisher: Idea Group Publishing
E-Business Strategy, Sourcing and Governance is based on the premise that it is difficult, if not impossible, to manage a modern business or public organization without at least some knowledge of the planning, use, control, and benefits of information technology. Managers need to have an understanding of strategy development, including the current technology situation, the current and desired business situation, the need for changes, the application portfolio, and organizational and human resource issues in the area of information technology.E-Business Strategy, Sourcing and Governance was written after several years of management education, training, and research. I have been conducting management education at the graduate and undergraduate levels in Norway and abroad. For example, the Master of Management program in Information Technology Management & E-Commerce that the Norwegian School of Management BI runs at Fudan University in China covers most of the material included in this book. I have also been conducting management training in organizations such as the telecom company Telenor. I have been conducting management research in areas such as key issues in technology management, critical success factors, knowledge management, leadership roles of technology managers, project management, outsourcing, and strategy implementation.
