Volume 15, Issue 4 (2017)Greetings!
This is the last issue of 2017. The issue contains three papers. In the rapidly changing field of IT, it is important that IT practitioners have appropriate and updated competencies. The paper Introducing Competencies in Organizations, authored by Henk Plessius, Anand Sheombar, and Pascal Ravesteyn (all from the HU University of Applied Science) focuses on the important issue of IT competency frameworks. In the second paper, Critical Success Factors for Adopting Telemedicine Applications, the author Arjen Maris, Anas Yousfi, Stefan Ramshorst, and Pascal Ravesteyn focus on the critical factors involved in the successful implementation of a large telemedicine project in the Netherlands. In the third paper, What's Yours is Mine: Trust in Collaborative Consumption, authors Kiku Jones (Quinnipiac University) and Lori Leonard (University of Tulsa) address the issue of trust and the role it plays in consumer-to-consumer e-commerce. They propose a trust model with three expected influences, test the model, and discuss their results.
Together, these three papers address very interesting and current topics in IT management. The editors would like to thank the authors and the reviewers for their excellent and important contributions to CIIMA.
