Abstract:

The development of large integrated information systems has had a spotty success record. This thesis investigates the role of the user-management team in the development of these systems and what principal problems the organization must face. The study recommends that the user is the individual with ultimate responsibility for the development of the system. Further the problems that must be faced, in descending order of importance, are 1 the organization power structure, 2 the people in the organization and 3 the technical issues of data processing.
