The third edition of Information Systems: A Management Perspective is built around a practical, widely applicable approach for understanding IT-enabled systems from a business viewpoint. This book's ambitions go far beyond covering current vocabulary for talking about information systems and technology. It couches its entire coverage in terms of a systems analysis approach developed with the help of MBA students who used these ideas to write papers about information systems in real business settings.
