From Control to Drift

The Dynamics of Corporate Information Infrastructures

Claudio U. Ciborra, Kristin Braa, Antonio Cordella, Bo Dahlbom, Angelo Failla, Ole Hanseth, Vidar Hepsø, Jan Ljungberg, Eric Monteiro, and Kai A. Simon

This book presents six in-depth case studies of large corporations-AstraZeneca, IBM, Norsk Hydro, Roche, SKF, and Statoil-which offer a rich picture of the main issues involved in information infrastructure implementation and management. Far from being a linear process, the use of the information infrastructure is in fact open-ended, in many cases out of control. Current management models and consulting advice do not seem to be able to cope with such a business landscape.
