Abstract

During the last decades, numerous theoretical frameworks have been developed in the field of general management. Each theoretical framework has proved useful to explain specific questions about the structure, processes, or performance of the modern firm. In this study we try to propose some connections between general management literature and IT literature. Some of the most important management theories, such as the Transaction Costs Economics, the Agency Theory, the Resource-Based View, and the Knowledge- Based View can be useful to explain specific IT issues. The final goal of this chapter is to propose several lines of advance in global IT using different theories or frameworks as the basis for future research.
