Value and Performance in the IT Society.
This paper discusses valuing information and its supporting technologies in the global environment. Different value propositions are explored from a financial, social, cultural, political, economic, corporate, and personal values perspective. Various means of measuring the relevancy of these value propositions to the individual, organization or government agency, and society in general are identified. The paper also provides a contextual analysis of the development of information, knowledge, and supporting technologies since the 1970s when computing was mainstreamed into organizations and had its impact on decision-making, workflow, and service delivery. A model of valuing information and intellectual capital on the balance sheet, that is appropriate to the new millennium and the rise of the knowledge organization, is explored, together with an overview of the future state for libraries and information services.
