A little bit about information and society

E2ECA: eGovernment and eBusiness Comparative Analysis

This is the third thread of my research that deals with information policy. In contrast to the other two threads that are inter-related, this subject is a stand-alone thread of research. Again the main theme that interests me in this research is to understand the information politics of decision makers when they address challenges in eGovernment and eBusiness. This research is conducted with my colleague, Prof. Jochen Scholl and would like to deepen the understanding of the cross-specific similarities and differences between the two sectors. Right now we are in the end of the first phase where we conducted 6 focus groups (3 for eGovernment and 3 for eBusiness). In the next phase we will do integrated focus groups and then apply to an NSF grant to try to widen the research nationally and internationally.

We already published one conference proceeding (HICSS) and had two talks.
