Abstract

A socio-technical approach to information systems requires recognition of the inextricable link between information technologies and humans as designers and users. This essay explores five areas in which information technology and human computer designers/users interact within the context of global organizations. These five areas are: using information technology to support the human resource strategy of global organizations, using information technology to support the generation and distribution of organizational learning, using human resource management techniques and programs to support the work of information systems professionals, using human resource management techniques and programs to support the work of global “end-users” or knowledge workers, and, finally, national and regional policies to support technical and human resource infrastructures.
