This new international edition of Fundamentals of Business Information Systems continues to offer a concise overview of information systems fundamentals, using the same nine-chapter format as the original US text, but with new content and global examples threaded throughout. Seasoned authors Ralph Stair and George Reynolds are joined by Thomas Chesney (Nottingham University Business School) and together they weave the fundamentals of managing information systems into an understandable and engaging text that is mapped specifically to the requirements of students studying in the United Kingdom, Europe, Middle East and Africa.As with the original United States editions, this text covers the fundamentals of any introductory Management / Business Information Systems (MIS/BIS) course, drawing on material from the new international flagship text, Principles of Business Information Systems, published contemporaneously. By taking the best material from Principles of Business Information Systems and condensing it into nine chapters, this text is particularly suitable for shorter courses or those involving less detail while still requiring a comprehensive survey of the core concepts that make up modern information systems courses.
