Information technology affects organizational information exchange and influences the aspect of organization development (OD) and organization design. In economics theory, the network externality has proved the emerging Internet/networking development. However, non-updated information spreads allover the Internet. Search engines can not give us guaranteed consistency and accessibility to required information. Although the Internet has possessed the advantage of information sharing but the phenomenon of information explosion has confronted many users to an awkward situation when choosing for the right information. The development of network organizational information system is criticized for problems of system penetration and operational security of a cross-organizational operations and system integration. It is always stopped at the insufficiency of information technology and designer’s individual cognition and hence ignored the requirements of information quality for both the user and the organization. In order to conquer these problems while constructing the information system of network organization, adding values to support the management’s needs of centralized management and decentralized autonomy and to satisfy the individual validity of network members with organizational information are more important rather than the concerns of system visibility and flexibility. This research adopts the way of literature analysis to examine the progress of network externality so as to explore and reconfirm the externality of network organization. Few researches pay attention to network organizational information validity and accessibility from the view point of user utility and network value. Therefore, this research claims that the provision of network organizational information should exam the individual validity of members and the operational requirements of the organization. And then, to address a conceptual framework of network organization which enables information sharing and information integration to fulfill the organizational coordination. An assessment of administrative activity cost based on cross-website information exchange is put in place to further observe the effects of network organization. The results and contributions of this thesis are shown as follows. 1. The proposed framework of cross-website network organization, Extra-web organization (EWO), can be freed from criticizing the problems of system penetration and operational security while developing network organizational information system. EWO also satisfies the requirements of centralized management and decentralized individual operation for coordinating the network organization. 2. Explore the beneficial basis of network externality and innovate the measurement of network organization development with a substitution of information quality. 3. Utilize a new concept of information activity cost assessment to judge the network organization effects. A generalized assessment model was held; results showed that the more the levels of network organization we have, the higher information activity cost we get; and it is the same while the members of network organization increases. In EWO, information activity cost reduced dramatically by the use of information sharing and information integration mechanism. This also means that it is workable for promoting network organization effect.
