Description

Temporary organizations might not remain such in perpetuity. They may transform into permanent form over time. Information systems are pivotal to such transformation. In this study, we examine such transformation using an exploratory case study of a firm operating in the domain of disaster management. We examine the changing role of information systems in driving such transformation. In this regard, we propose a dynamic framework for examining these dynamics across different phases of this transformation. This study concludes that information systems hold significant influence on communication, coordination, and control of various teams in such temporary organizations. When implemented appropriately, it reflects variedly at different stages of such organizational transformation. This study helps develop a vocabulary for future research on the theme of transformation for such organizations.
