a. How did the information systems and the organization design changes implemented by Knudstorp align with the changes in business strategy? Which of the generic strategies does Lego appear to be using in this case? Provide support for your choice.
b. Think about your place of employment or other familiar organization. Identify the industry or primary business focus for a frame of context for other students. What is the organization’s business strategy? What is its organizational strategy? What is its IS/IT strategy? If you do not know these strategies for certain, then discuss what they appear to be based on your experience. Are they aligned? What do you see as a result of either alignment or misalignment?
