Search the Ashford Online Library for an article that addresses change in organizations as a result of e-commerce. Briefly summarize the article pointing out how electronic commerce directly impacts change. Include the resource information in the reference list. Explain your answer in 200 words. Respond to at least two of your fellow students’ postings.
Electronic commerce is the catalyst of fundamental change within organizations because the internet itself is a fundamental change in human history. I feel that we often fail to realize just how amazing the internet is. One day it may be considered to rival the printing press or the automobile in terms of technological advances that changed the world. While brick and mortar stores still have their place, it should be readily apparent that any company that isn’t able to adapt to the growing online marketplace is likely to be left in the dust.
