In the spring 2012 semester I will be introducing a new course that explores the relationship between information technology and organizational change. Here is a brief course description. More information and a syllabus to follow:

The design and construction of technology is only the beginning of the challenging process of implementing (and maintaining) complex information systems. In this course, we will explore the technical, sociological, ethnographic, and historical literature that deals with the organizational aspects of information technology. The focus will be on business information systems, but we will also look at scientific, governmental, and health-related organizations as well.
