Conceptual Framework for Information Systems and Organizational Agility

Abstract:
Many IS researchers agree that Information Systems have been regarded as a black box, despite that conceptualizing information systems has been one of the major topics in information systems research. Such concern about the lack of understanding of information systems has been shared in the field of organizational studies as well. In this study, we conceptualize and theorize the relationship between IS and organization agility. Agility is a critical organizational capability in today's business environment where the only certainty is its unpredictability. Positioned as a conceptual study, this research has a number of contributions. The proposed framework fills the research gap in understanding IS within an organization's context by dissecting IS and analyzing how IS can contribute to organizational agility. It also serves practitioners by helping them assess their current IS status and identify agility enablers and barriers. The framework is also useful when an organization designs its IS infrastructure and architecture to enhance its agility.

The seminar is organized by the Information Management section in Amsterdam Business School and held in conjunction with the BENAIS PhD program.
