A Tool for the Administration and Management of University Profile Information
Bulchand, Jacques; Rodriguez, Jorge; Chattah, Ana C.

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to present a management tool that helps to achieve the objectives of the plan for info-tech systems and communications of the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria for the 2003-2006 period. Design/methodology/approach: The methodology used in this case is nothing if not practical. The chosen tool involved university members who put it into practice and the results were observed. Findings: Finds that a practical instrument, which appeals to the users' real needs, can overcome their objections to change and their apprehension of technological innovation. Research limitations/implications: As in all individual case studies--and this is no exception--the methodology chosen circumscribes to some extent the research and its results, which therefore cannot be automatically applied generally elsewhere. Practical implications: Users' interests are paramount and preparation of the technology involved must be given the utmost attention over a considerable period of time. Originality/value: University members have here a user-friendly means of effecting e-administration simply and easily. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
