Modelling of Information Flows in the Business Administration Realm - The Research Perspective

Vladimír Bureš

Abstract

The main objective of information management is to ensure that valuable information is acquired and exploited to its fullest extent. From the research perspective, the information management constitutes currently a global and actual research topic. The main research construct of this paper is the information flow, since attention paid to understanding of information flow patterns or principles represents the area in which significant research results can be anticipated, for theoretical explanation is mostly linked to the realm of technical systems. The main objective of this discussion paper is to briefly review existing research results in this domain, identify the main gaps, and suggest project-based approach that can be discussed, scrutinised and consequently implemented. The research proposal is based on the mixed research methodology, which consists in the phenomenological research, the Grounded Theory, the replication multiple case-study, and system dynamics and multi-agent modelling.
