Abstract

A number of research efforts in the United States of America in recent years have provided a look at issues in information management. The important factors change with time. The degree of importance of individual issues also changes as new technologies enter into information management activities. In this study, rankings of the relative importance of information management issues in both the United States of America and the Republic of China are compared. Most issues share a common level of importance. There are, however, some important differences. Those in the rankings are, to some extent, explainable by differences in the economic development and cultural environment of the two countries. Additional efforts are needed to provide more rigorous explanations.
