Management in an information economy can only succeed by employing IT as a tool. To facilitate this, and for education to provide effective technology transfer in an information economy, the fundamental nature of IT must be re-examined, and new educational models, techniques and tools developed. This should enable management to capture value in a time of continuous change, form which a model of management capable of exploiting IT would emerge. The authors review the impact of post-industrial models of management on effective IT integration into business practice and outline an organisation model for the 'technology of management'. In a scenario built around a fictitious organisation, the authors develop three models which describe generic approaches, and examine issues confronting the organisation in integrating IT into its business. The models are the machine model, hybrid model and organisation model.<>
