Dhaliwal’s Study on Alignment Within the Corporate IT Unit To Be Published In European Journal of Information Systems

For release:  March 1, 2011 

In a study of how strategic management concepts such as alignment can be applied to the internal context of the corporate IT unit, Professor Dhaliwal and his co-author discover that underlying the macro level of strategic alignment are other, more granular levels of alignment involving the interdependent subunits within the unit. They present and test a model for tactically aligning the software development and testing units in software engineering to demonstrate that there is theoretic and practical value in considering alignment as a dynamic, context-driven, social phenomenon as well as a useful interpretative lens for exploring organizational interactions and interdependencies. The study titled "Alignment within the corporate IT unit: An analysis of software testing and development," which is co-authored with FCBE PhD student  Colin Onita, has been accepted for publication in the A+ rated European Journal of Information Systems (EJIS).
