Abstract:

With the opportunities to expand from a local to a global market, organizations need to change with the development of information systems and communication technologies. The electronically transforming organizations' success depends not only to hardware/software usage but also transformation in the well-defined business processes. Successful transformation from "organization" to "e-organization" by innovative processes requires strategic and cultural changes as a result of changes in the leadership. In this thesis, a maturity model for the organizations to achieve to paperless office level will be constructed. Meanwhile, factors which are essential to reach that level are to be identified.
