Information for Innovation

This chapter discusses changes in the information gathered by a certain organization. Since organizations require information to change, new information must be sought. Of all information acquired by large firms, financial information is valued the most, for most organizations' strategic decisions are based on these. The more information is gathered, the easier it is for it to be controlled, but it is more difficult to learn. When less information is gathered, it is much easier for it to be learned, but more difficult for it to be controlled.

Keywords:   information acquisition, financial information, internal information, strategies, strategic decisions, information control
