IS managers are faced with many different risks such as project, capability, financial, and maintainability risks, caused by a variety of technical, organizational, and environmental factors. We found that senior IS managers in several diverse organizations focus primarily on managing organizational contributors to risk, in particular instituting various change management strategies to manage functionality and systems integration risk. Managers today are concerned about the financial risk resulting from lack of technical procedures to justify IS investments.
