The administrators and staff of the organization had participated in a feasibility study that was developed and conducted to prepare the subsets of the organization for the change. The purpose and objective of the study was to review all the operational systems of the school district and to evaluate the feasibility of utilizing computer capability to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of these operational systems. Background material is presented, then the observations of actions and reactions of individuals and groups of individuals are reviewed.
