CoP: MISQE and SIM Pre-ICIS Workshop

Call for Papers, Pre-ICIS 2011 Academic Workshop and MISQE Special Issue SPONSORED BY: MIS Quarterly Executive and the Society of Information Management TITLE: Enterprises and People on the Move: Managing Mobility for Business Value Program Co-Chairs and MISQE Special Issue Editors: Dorothy Leidner, Baylor University, Senior Editor, MISQE Shan Pan, National University Singapore Juliana Sutanto, ETH-Zurich Description: The past decade has witnessed a remarkable increase in the use of mobile technologies and applications to gather and disseminate information to and from employees as well as customers. Technology advancements such as the smartphone, tablet computer, and cloud computing liberate employees from their physical constraints leading to flexible working space and time. While on one hand, an increase in employees? mobility may lead to better productivity and customer service; on the other hand, it may generate new security and compliance challenges for their organizations. How to address the challenges of supporting employees? mobility to eventually generate the desired business values is a pertinent and timely organizational issue. In addition, these advances in mobility provide opportunities and challenges for organizations seeking new means of reaching potential and existing customers, of personalizing customer service and advertising, and of tracking customers? use of various services as well as customers? responses to advertisements. As an interface to customers, advanced mobile devices may increase customization but also threaten privacy. Organizationsmust strike a careful balance between reaching its customers and pushing them away with messages that may be construed as intrusive. Those that achieve this balance are positioned to offer newer, richer services and products tocustomers. For this pre-ICIS 2011 workshop and for the MISQE special issue in 2012, we are seeking ?research for practice? papers that address the value that organizations are creating through embracing mobility. We are interested both in papers that consider the challenges and solutions to managing an increasingly mobile workforce and papers that consider the challenges and solutions to managing the relationships with customers using mobile technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: IT's Influence on Mobility Benefits and Challenges of Consumerization of IT for Enterprises Advantages and Drawbacks of Consumerization of IT for Employees Managing the Road Warriors Mobile IT Management and Strategy Strategies for Coping with the Personal Mobile Devices of Employees Increasing Employees? Productivity through Virtual Mobility Managing the Information in the Internet of Things Obtaining Business Values from Mobile Applications Pre-ICIS 2011 Workshop Information: Shanghai Location: TBA Date: Sunday, December 4th, time and location TBA Workshop Deadlines: Submit extended abstract (maximum 2 pages of text, single spaced): October 1, 2011 Notification of workshop acceptance with preliminary editorial feedback: November 1, 2011 Workshop Registration: Registration will be posted on the SIM web site: www.simnet.org SIM Academic Workshop liaison: Mary Sumner, Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville, msumner@siue.edu MIS Quarterly Executive Special Issue Deadlines: Note: Authors are not required to attend the workshop in order to submit to the special issue.

CFP JGIM Special Issue: Business Dynamics andMultinational Enterprise Systems

Call for Paper Journal of Global Information Management Special Issue: Business Dynamics and Multinational Enterprise Systems Guest Editors: William Yu Chung Wang (Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand) David Pauleen (Massey University, New Zealand) Unlike personal software packages, enterprise systems are normally customized to fit the business scope and strategy and the designs are based on the development team?s advice and business process analysis. Existing research has primarily focused on adoption processes such as the factors of adoption, selection of solutions, and analysis and design. Though the theoretical lens of information systems adoption and development cycle can provide a guide for investing in new system projects; in reality, it does not sufficiently address the impact of dynamic business environments and new business initiatives during the post-adoption phase. In fact, business praxis operates in a dynamic world and organizations face a variety of internally and externally driven changes. Businesses open and close, market demand goes up and down and sometimes initiates new enterprise horizons, and innovative technologies redefine strategies and enhance productivity. Globalization also makes firms more interconnected, and changes at partners? sites may impact operations. Maintaining the expected performance after systems adoption can be challenging in this dynamic business environment. For example, a multinational enterprise may relocate part of its operation or business resources from one country to another (e.g., production or customer relationship management) necessitating enterprise system modification, interface redesign (e.g., language issues), business process reengineering, and/or the recruitment and training of new IT teams. Mergers and acquisitions are another example when there will be challenges and decisions around existing enterprise systems to address changing business needs. While industry practitioners and academic researchers fully realize the importance of investment and adoption of the latest technologies for quality and productivity improvements, post-implementation issues associated with these enterprise systems might need equal attention. Thus, this special issue focuses on the management aspects of enterprise systems in the post-adoption phase in light of the changes occurring in dynamic business environments. Submissions are invited to investigate this phenomenon which can add to the literature and be applied to the business environment, especially enterprise systems in the multinational and global context. The prospective topics are not limited to the list below and all social science research methods are to be considered. Example topics could be: ? Research that examines cross-border M&A and the impacts on information systems management; ? Impacts on the enterprise systems based on changes in corporate strategies; ? Adjustment of enterprise systems and the associated issues caused by virtual, vertical and horizontal integration in the supply chain ; ? Projects consolidating pre-established multinational sites; ? Shifting of business/subordinates, new business processes, and the turning/reconfiguration of enterprise systems; ? Changes in information management requirements, such as issues of data management, information security management, IT staffing, IS evaluation, maintenance, etc.; ? Cross-cultural issues in the post-adoption phases of enterprise systems; ? Influences on the enterprise systems that are caused by changing business environments (e.g., economic downturn, governmental policy, regional issues, and new product/market developments); ? Factors that influence the decisions at the post adoption stage ? refinement, adjustment, or new adoption. ? Change of Buyer/Vendor Relationships and their impacts on the Enterprise Systems; ? Models and solutions for the Enterprise Systems of Small and Medium Firms in the face of changing business environments; ? HR Related Issues: IT Staff Retention, Training for Systems Use, and etc. ? Amendments to existing theories or new theoretical developments; When submitting a manuscript, please follow the submission guidelines as published in the Journal?s web pages at http://www.igi-global.com/jgim. The deadline for submissions is 1 Nov, 2011.

Capitalize the first letter of each word of your institution name as you would normally see it. The abstract of your paper should be in sentence case (first letter of each sentence capitalized and proper nouns capitalized). The page allowance for the Proceedings is as follows for papers which are accepted and for which a registration fee is paid: six pages for full papers and two pages for abstracts.
