Summary
  • MIS managers must redefine strategy and learn to cooperate with the personal computer (PC) end-user as the era of the powerful user arises. MIS must appreciate the evolution and begin to significantly budget for training, software, and end user support. The image of MIS as a manager of all company PCs and local area networks must be dropped in favor of a support role that matches technological capability. One method is the creation of a user-manager from MIS for a specific work group or a liaison to MIS from the work group. MIS should immediately: understand the needs of powerful end users; and market successful PC-level support and training activities to upper management. Management must also be made to appreciate that support groups need to establish standards, conduct research and development, and test software compatibility. The MIS department of the future will continue to provide: ownership of networks; management of facilities; and special technical knowledge.
