Review quote 'Writing a text book that is theoretically grounded, covers the subject in sufficient breadth AND depth, provides new insights based on research, and also guides readers into how to practice business information systems - it sounds an impossible task but Paul Beynon-Davies succeeds masterfully.
Highly recommended. It provides in-depth analysis of the key concepts and approaches used in business analysis and is written by a world leader in the field. Each chapter is rich with examples that make it easy for a student to identify how these principles actually work in today's organizations. His examples and thought points help to establish really applicable and sustainable learning from this rapidly changing field.
Very readable and of interest to students of business and society, but also a text that would enrich the context for those studying the more technical aspects of information systems - Pericles Rospigliosi, Senior Lecturer in e-commerce and management information systems, Brighton Business School, University of Brighton show more.
