The Oxford Handbook of Management Information Systems: Critical Perspectives and New Directions
Robert D Galliers, Wendy Currie
Management Information Systems (MIS) play a crucial role in an organization's operations, accounting, decision-making, project management, and competitive advantage. The Oxford Handbook of Management Information Systems takes a critical and interdisciplinary view of the increasing complexity of these systems within organizations, and the strategic, managerial, and ethical issues associated with the effective use of these technologies.
The book is organized into four parts:
- Part I: Background
- Part II: Theoretical and Methodological Perspectives in MIS
- Part III: Rethinking Theory in MIS Practice
- Part IV: Rethinking MIS Practice in a Broader Context
The Handbook provides an introductory background to the discipline and a methodological and philosophical framework for discussion of key topics, before exploring the issues associated with MIS in practice and considering the broader context and future agenda of research in light of such concerns as sustainability, ethics, and globalization.
Bringing together international scholars to focus on the theory and practice of MIS, this handbook provides a comprehensive resource for academics and research students in the fields of MIS, IS, Organizational Behaviour, and Management in general.
