Review of Book. Aug 19, 2002
This book is a timely contribution to a niche issue that has been under discussion for the last few years. In addition to some meassurement tools such a frameworks, models, approaches for IT use measurement in small business, the book builds its wealth of knowledge on the basis of ample case studies from different countries.
At first glance, I must confess some relcutance to reading the book. A quick scrutiny of the contents and whereabouts of the contributing authors did show a strong Australian followed by Canadian dominance. This reality can however easily be overlooked once one does actually read the book. Contributions in effect come from Australia, Canada, Italy, the United Kingdom, USA, Slovenia and Hong Kong. Most important of all perhaps is the fact that though country specific in some cases, the findings and conclusions are in fact quite generic and applicable at a global level.
If you are interested in knowing about the adoption, use, and management of IT in small businesses, then this book is for you. Detailed case studies present some key realities, challenges and solutions.
