The Corporate Information Management (CIM) initiave in the Department of Defense (DoD) is an attempt to eliminate duplicate Automatic Data Processing ( ADP) systems through the standardization of functional area requirements across all DoD agencies. CIM initiative management recognized that the DoD organizational culture might impact or be impacted by such an all-encompassing initiative. The purpose of this thesis is to estimate the possible impact of culture on information systems implementations by conducting a literature review of cultural theory, change theory, resistance to change, and information systems implementation. The thesis concludes with a recommendation for implementation of the CIM initiative through a four part plan based on the findings of the literature review.
