Product Description

From the Back Cover

Modern information technologies are transforming the delivery of goods and services, but managers face organisational and strategic issues as they decide how to respond to these opportunities.

This book draws on empirical research to present a distinct strategic and organisational perspective on the management of computer-based information systems.

Adopting a management approach, this third edition of Managing Information Systems: Strategy and Organisation maintains a four-part framework of foundations, strategy, organisation and implementation.

Thoroughly revised and updated, the new edition includes:

  • A new chapter on the social contexts of information systems, including discussions of data privacy, intellectual property and ethics
  • Substantially revised material on implementation in Part Four, combining both conceptual and practical issues, and covering the problems of assessing costs and benefits
  • New and revised recurring chapter cases illustrating current practices in companies such as Zara, Google, Tesco, RBS and Nokia  

The book also includes learning features designed to promote critical reflection and further research such as:

  • Case questions to explore the link between current practice and theoretical perspectives
  • MIS in practice and Activity boxes to encourage the reader to reflect on the themes explored in the chapter
  • End-of-chapter questions to enable readers to test their understanding of topics
  • Weblinks and references to offer sources of further information and ideas.

Format: Paperback
Reader-friendly and covers the basics of Information Systems well but there is no in-depth information whatsoever: the textbook won't get university students much more than a pass grade.

This book very quickly and was packaged very well. The book had done underlining but this was very minimal. Very happy with my experience and my book. I would definitely recommend

A Very Good Textbook 9 Oct. 2012
By M. Albayrakoglu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I use "Managing Information Systems: Strategy and Organisation, 3rd Edition" in my "Management of Information Technology" course as the required textbook. The book is an excellent example from the British school of textbooks: condensed, yet relevant and very well-written. Each chapter begins with a mini case with a set of questions at the end. Throughout the chapter, as the subject develops, case questions--sometimes along with new information about the case--reemerge to give the reader a chance to apply the subject matter to the opening case. This feature is invaluable form a pedagogical point of view because it relates the case directly to the subject matter at hand. I look forward to the 4th edition of the title since the material covered and reading lists are slightly outdated. More comprehensive coverage of Web 2.0 and social media and their impact on organizations and information systems is required.
