Organisation Structure, Management Style and IT The Case of Hong Kong Chinese Building Companies

Abstract: The paper reports a study of how managers of Hong Kong Chinese building firms have changed their styles of management and the organisation of their firms in response to the introduction of information technology. In some cases these changes have been quite marked and have led to the erosion of the role and influence of middle managers as information has become more readily available to senior and lower level managers. The study suggests that the conflicts between traditional management philosophies and those required of IT can be resolved and used to strengthen commitment to organisational performance.
