Faculty at the College of Charleston School of Business make an impact by producing intellectual contributions for society at large. Many times, these contributions allow businesses to think a little differently.
Recently, a study led by Iris Junglas, Ph.D., the Noah T. Leask Distinguished Professor of Information Management and Innovation, was featured in The Wall Street Journal.
In their research published in the International Journal of Information Management, Junglas and her co-researchers found increased levels of IT empowerment and higher levels of perceived performance among those who actively use consumer IT (such as personal smartphones) versus those who do not. According to Junglas:
IT empowerment is real. You can empower people with IT in the workplace.
