Information Technology has become an essential component ofcontemporary society, allowing much faster and more widespreadcommunication, not least through the growth of the Internet.However, many issues concerned with the human aspects of the use ofIT remain problematic despite technological advances. An enhancedability to collect and process data, or to communicateelectronically across time and space, does not necessarily lead toimproved human communication and action. This book explores thesocial aspects of computerisation, using a wide range of detailedcase studies, analysed from a variety of conceptual viewpoints. Afurther distinctive feature of the book is that it draws onempirical material from across the world as a whole, includingnon-Western countries. It is argued that we should be using IT tosupport a world in which diversity and difference arerespected.SynopsisMaking a World of Difference provides a context for the wholedebate about the relationship of people and computers. It looks atthe role of IS/IT in a modern society and the way it impacts onpeople, companies, economics etc. Prof. Walsham readilyacknowledges that this environment is rapidly changing and that itis therefore important not to focus too closely on currenttechnologies or one particular system of thought, but consider themas one of many other alternatives. It is structured to be of usefor academics and business audience - Part 1 is holistic andreflexive, while Parts 2 and 3 are written for the busy manager whocan consider the key issues independently.
