a service department with 20 employees and a sales and marketing department . Exper-flite is relatively flat , and only the production department has subdepartments reporting to it

Mabourget , founder and current COO , is determined to implement computer systems and an IS strategy in Exper-Flite . Since IS entails implementing technology to record , store , and disseminate information , it should coordinate with the organizational strategy and an overriding business strategy . An IS strategy ‘s success depends on the strength of the firm ‘s business objectives , tactics , and strategies .

While it might streamline processes , the security and efficiency threats involved may bring more risk than reward

An example would be to provide an interactive tool for customers to manipulate online before placing an for a plane
