A Model for Information Systems Planning and Evaluation. AIR Forum 1980 Paper.
Coleman, D. R.; Bolte, J. R.
A planning and evaluation model for management information systems (MIS) at the institutional or system level in higher education is presented. The procedure provides an analytical approach for assessing the effectiveness of an existing information system utilizing a variation of the Business Systems Planning methodology developed by the IBM Corporation. The model emphasizes involvement of top level administrators in the MIS planning and evaluation process and uses followup procedures to monitor system changes and improve MIS planning. An example of the use of the model in the State University System of Florida is presented. (Author/SW)
