While information technology (IT) serves as a new source of sustainable competitive advantage for firms, it also induces hyperturbulent environments (or hyperturbulence) that erode that sustainable competitive advantage. In this paper, we posit that these contradictions might be due to cross-level nonlinear causality between firm-level IT-based strategic actions and collective-level IT-induced hyperturbulence.
In this study, we argue that IT M and A integration does not always lead to greater value creation.
This study develops and tests the idea that the cross-business information technology integration (CBITI) capability of an acquirer creates significant value for shareholders of the acquirer in mergers and acquisitions (M&A).
This study examines the hypercompetition phenomenon within the prepackaged software industry. It theoretically develops and empirically validates the idea that dynamically changing complementarity relationships among software product markets increase industry hypercompetition.
This study views the digitally enabled extended enterprise as a complex system of business processes and examines how sourcing choices are made in such enterprises.
This study examines sources of cross-unit IT synergy and the conditions under which cross-unit IT synergies improve the performance of multibusiness firms.
This study examines how the IT resources of a firm should be organized and managed to enhance the firm's knowledge management (KM) capability, and whether and how KM capability influences firm performance.
