Managing and Using Information Systems Ch. 3 – Organization Impacts of Information Systems Use A synergy results from designing organizations with IT in mind, which cannot be achieved when IT is just added on. Organizational strategy includes the organization’s design, as well as the managerial choices that define, set up, coordinate, and control its work processes. Key characteristics of the Information Age organization; (1) organizational structure, (2) human resources, and (3) management processes. Organizational Structure - Companies have benefits of small scale and large scale simultaneously. - Large organizations adopt flexible and dynamic structures. - The distinctions between centralized and decentralized control blur. - Focus is on projects and processes instead of tasks and standard procedures. Human Resources - Workers are better trained, more autonomous, and more transient. - The work environment is exciting and engaging. - Management is a shared, rotated, and sometimes part-time job.
