Please read below two discussion questions and answer 600 words in total.
1)Discussion: 300 words
Review strategies, successes, and failures related to IT in different firms. Synthesize this knowledge into a concise “problem statement,” which begins with the phrase “An unsolved problem in the field of IT strategic management that could be addressed by additional research is…” Follow up with 2-3 paragraphs that support the existence of the problem and its negative effects on its stakeholders. Some things to keep in mind:
- A problem is something that is going wrong and it causes negative effects on stakeholders such as researchers, professionals, or the public.
- The mere existence of some negative-sounding condition (e.g., a “lack” of something) doesn’t constitute a problem. There must be some negative effects as a result of this condition.
- A problem is not a goal (e.g., “
An unsolved problem is … better using information resources.”).
- A problem is not a question (e.g., “
An unsolved problem is … how to determine what information resources are underutilized”).
