Abstract

[Abstract]: The 'cultural chasm' between business and information technology (IT) professionals and the importance of their developing and sustaining a healthy partnership has received attention in the IT literature. This study applies existing theories of culture and inter-group relations from the organizational behavior discipline to investigate how and why the IT culture affects these relationships. Insights as to how tensions in the IT-business relationship can be minimized by managing the IT culture are revealed.
