Название: Advanced Topics in Global Information Management, Volume 2
Автор: Tan F.
This book is the second in 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.
For the benefit of readers not familiar with the topic area, let’s define what global
information management research is. GIM research can be broadly considered to be of two
types — one that is global and the other regional. GIM is a field of study that examines the
development, implementation, management, and use of information systems (IS) in a global/
international context; for example, cultural differences and their impact on various aspects of
IS deployment, global sourcing/supply chain management, virtual teams in a multicultural
setting, and global e-commerce issues. At the same time, GIM research deals with management,
technological and IS use issues in a single- or multi-country organizational environment;
for example, IS project experiences in US and Australian organizations, Information
Technology (IT) transfer and diffusion in the Arab world, and the role of the government in
Singapore’s IT success.
Topics of study in GIM research continue to be highly diverse. It is hoped that Volume
II will continue to advance our understanding of the field with a selection of research papers
on a wide range of GIM topics. As with the first volume, Volume II is organized into two
sections — global themes and regional perspectives.
