To reduce the high failure rate of software projects, managers need better tools to assess and manage software project risk. In order to create such tools, however, information systems researchers must first develop a better understanding of the dimensions of software project risk and how they can affect project performance. Progress in this area has been(More)

This paper focuses on strategic information flows between buyers and suppliers within logistics supply chain relationships and on subsequent relationship-specific performance outcomes. Our analysis of dyadic data collected from 91 buyer–supplier logistics relationships finds that buyer and supplier strategic information flows positively impact the(More)
relationships between measures of information technology (IT) investment and facets of corporate business performance. The results of our study suggest that IT investments have begun to show results in proving they can make a positive contribution to firm output and labor productivity. However, various measures of IT investment do not appear to have a(More)
