IFIP 8.6 Conference: The Transfer and Diffusion of IT for Organizational Resilience
Wednesday 7th June 2006
Cairnes Graduate School of Business and Public Policy, NUI Galway
The conference focus is on how IT innovation can contribute to making organizations more resilient. Commercial organizations are trying to make sense of the competitive environment and quickly generate new strategic options. Public organizations are struggling to meet societal needs for innovative information services. IT staff have spent much of their energy improving transactional efficiency. IT now needs to be seen as a positive force for making business innovation resilient. Issues such as IT organizational design, social networking, diversity, improvisation, and rich media are likely to advance our understanding of resilience in this context, and account for an organization�s need to sustain innovation.
