CAS IS Symposium

CAS IS Symposium

Information technology (IT) has created complexity in business by incorporating itself into the fabric of products, services, and business processes. IT has also contributed to the emergence of complex adaptive business systems (CABS) by affecting the diversity, adaptivity, interconnectedness, and interdependency of organizations. IT-enabled solutions are being touted as potential fixes for a number of managerial challenges in CABS. This research symposium aims to: 
 
  1. Bring together researchers and practitioners to make sense of IT-induced complexity in business and IT-enabled solutions to business complexity 
  2. Motivate further interest in advancing knowledge on the role of information management in CABS 
  3. Build a community of scholars and practitioners who are interested in complexity and IT 
  4. Plan the second annual symposium on complexity and IT to be held at The University of British Columbia in 2014 
  5. Build further interest in and support for symposiums, conferences, and journal special issues that focus on complexity and IT
