Identifying IT impacts on organizational structure and business value
2008 (English)In: Proceedings of the Third International Workshop on Business/IT Alignment and Interoperability, 2008, Vol. 344, 44-57 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
This paper presents a framework for analysis of how IT systems add business value by causally affecting the structuring of organizations. To aid our understanding of IT benefits related to organizational structure, we put the well established theory of organizational behavior developed by Mintzberg to use. Combining Mintzberg with more recent research on the business value of IT, the result is a qualitative multi-disciplinary theoretical framework that shows which business values are affected by IT in relation to the organizational structure. This framework can be used to analyze what kind of IT system should be used by an organization with a given structure to maximize its business value.
