Description

The Advances in Global Information Management (AGIM) Book Series is an interdisciplinary outlet for emerging publications that address critical areas of information technology and its effects on the social constructs of global culture, how information resources are managed, and how these practices contribute to business and managerial functions. The series directly addresses the world economy, its powers and implications.

Big international companies are deconstructing themselves and creating new structures to survive in the new world order. Concepts like reengineering, rightsizing, network organizations and the virtual corporation are fast becoming the common theme in business practice. International strategic alliances are also on the increase based on the notion that no single company and no single country can alone be a successful player in the new global game. The organizational applications and managerial implications of these technology resources warrant a forum for the discussion of these issues. AGIM has an important role to play in providing such a forum for researchers and practitioners to share leading-edge knowledge in the global information resource management area.
