I need help creating a thesis and an outline on Information Systems Strategy. Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA Style Guide. An abstract is required. The founders believed that sharing as well as reusing items, more specifically, offering unwanted items that are in usable condition (such as clothing, mobile phones, TVs, and so on) to other individuals for free or in exchange for another item, will safeguard the environment, as it will reduce the waste sent to landfill as well as reduce the demand for natural resources. In addition, the organization wants to support individuals and families, who are economically deprived or struggling, by offering them an online platform where they can find items for free or in exchange for other unwanted items.
In any organization, the organizational structure provides the framework for the founders or leaders as well as the department heads, supervisors, employees, and others to operate in a streamlined and effective manner. This is applicable to online organizations such as ReuseUK, and particularly for organizations with dual or multiple founders or leaders. As ReuseUK consists of two founders, they have a range of options to choose from including partnerships, corporations, and others. “Which one is right for you depends on many factors, including how much control you want to maintain, tax and liability issues, and your business goals” (Simon 2013). In that direction, the partnership appears to be a suitable organizational structure for ReuseUK to follow. The advantage of a partnership-based organizational structure is that it provides management flexibility, so that management decisions and other responsibilities can be allocated among the partners according to business needs and each partner’s strengths (Simon 2013). In that direction, while one partner has an Information Technology (IT) background, the other has a social enterprise background, both of which can be utilized to manage this IT-based social enterprise organization. Partner with IT background can take care of the website functioning and the related tasks, including the supervision of the IT support analyst and importantly the IS strategy. Although the partner with social enterprise qualifications can manage the content of the website, along with other key personnel of marketing .coordinator, customer advisor, and fundraiser, he/she will also play a key role in IS strategy.
