Abstract:

The management of information is a critical executive responsibility. This is especially true in the public sector where information not money is the medium of exchange. For the Army executive, on the battlefield or in an office, the computer will continue to influence strategy, performance, and resource decisions. Traditional executive tasks such as strategic planning and resource acquisition and spending are examined in light of information management. In addition, newer executive responsibilities, orchestrating the implementation of end-user computing and assuring a positive people-computer environment, are presented. These basic executive responsibilities are framed within the context of systems thinking. Keywords Systems approach Strategic information planning.
