Abstract

Today’s dispersal of information technology (IT) decision making across many organizational managers and employees offers the promise of greatly increasing the extent to which IT is applied to the organization’s managerial and operational work systems (Boynton & Zmud, 1987; Jarvenpaa & Ives, 1990). Along with the advantages of distributed action, however, come the potential disadvantages of inappropriate allocations of effort and resources and associated outcomes — chiefly poor investment decisions, lost opportunities, duplicated efforts, and incompatible platforms and applications.
