Understanding Information Technology Configuration in Business Diversification: A Political View
Tao Hu, Xihui Zhang and Wen-Yuan Teng

Abstract:
This research investigates how corporate politics affects Information Technology (IT) configuration decisions in organizational settings of business diversification. We propose that IT configuration in business diversification is a joint function of organizational political forces, modal choices of diversification strategies and related behavioral reactions of organizational actors. This research contributes to information systems literature in the theoretical deliberation of the organizational imperative in terms of IT configuration in the context of business diversification. Specifically, we advance a research model and a set of theory-driven propositions which can serve as a basis for the development of hypotheses to be empirically tested in future research.
