    Special Issue on IT-enabled Business Management and Decision Making in (Post) Covid-19 Era

    In this special issue, we call for efforts from IS scholars on the proper design, use, and management of IT in (post) COVID-19 era. While it is still too early to term these as "lessons learned" – both due to the fact that we are still in the recovery process and assessing change often takes a longer time horizon – we welcome research that can provide insights into both successful and unsuccessful attempts to innovate using technology during (post) COVID-19 era. Connecting these efforts to the future – i.e., how such innovations can provide new opportunities in business and how these transform decision-making going forward, would be especially interesting to explore, as these can open up potentially new areas of research for our community. This SI call is open to researchers using any methodology. We welcome research performed at an individual, group, organizational, and societal level; and research using different methods, such as qualitative, empirical, and design science. Together, we can build a substantial body of knowledge, transforming the COVID-19 challenges into new opportunities in business.
