There are several types of IT/IS policies which govern the appropriate and acceptable use of information technologies in organizations. However, in the age of new digital business models and the upsurge of the digital economy, is there a need for specific policies to address the recent trends?
Questions we might need to ask include:
- Is there any recent research on the digital policies in organizations?
- What categories of policies will enable organizations to efficiently take advantage of opportunities in the digital economy? And how will these policies differ across industries/sectors?
- What digital policies (micro, meso and macro-level) will enable organizations to positively impact on development needs in their communities and countries?
In effect, how do organizational policies catch up with the rapid growth and changes in the digital economy?
