Thinking New System(s)? Some Action Items.
Penrod, James I.; Craft, Larry N.
The planning for, design, and implementation of information management systems in colleges and universities is approaching a state of adolescence as a science. Because rules cannot be devised with sufficient scope and depth to cover all institutional and systems contingencies, the necessary activities remain somewhere between magic and art. At least 10 different efforts should be made in the early stages of systems planning which relate to facilities management, a systems committee, the user liaison functions, seminars, data base management, advisory committees, implementation task groups, a procedures committee, user training, and evaluation. Attachments include a systems seminar model for increased participant consciousness in a planned organizational change, a systems seminar end-of-meeting evaluation instrument, a responsibility statement for data base administrators, user module checklist tables, and a university procedures committee responsibility matrix.
