Abstract

Abstract:

This article examines the role of information in the early years of the English East India Company (EIC). It examines different aspects of the organizational behavior of the EIC between the years 1600 and 1623 and shows the interplay between physical expansion and the transformation of information-handling practices from several perspectives. Although the focus is on a single organization, this case study provides insights into the informational challenges faced by early modern trading companies and similar organizations coordinating operations on a global scale.
