UNSPECIFIED (1996) Information systems/technology evaluation practices: Evidence from UK organizations. JOURNAL OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, 11 (2). pp. 129-141. ISSN 0268-3962Full text not available from this repository.
The evaluation of information systems technology (IS/IT) investments has been a much debated issue in the IS literature. This paper adds to that debate by discussing the IS/IT project evaluation practices of a sample of the top 1000 UK companies. The study sheds light on a number of evaluation issues, including the extent to which formal procedures of evaluation exist within organizations, and the extent to which consultation with stakeholders takes place, in addition to identifying the problems inherent in evaluating IS/IT investments. The implications of the findings are discussed, where possible in the light of previous research, in addition to identifying a number of key issues where further research is needed.
