From Control to Drift: The Dynamics of Corporate Information Infrastructures

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2001 - Business & Economics - 246 pages
"This book provides the reader with interpretations and theories that can foster a different understanding and approach. Thus, the economics of standards, complexity theory, and actor-network theory are harnessed to penetrate the issues emerging from the case studies and to generate a new conception of the information infrastructure that is relevant both for researchers and practitioners."--Jacket.
