Abstract:

This thesis develops guidelines for building Web sites that are useful to senior managers in two ways. First, these managers can obtain information from or pass information to a site in order to accomplish tasks more effectively and efficiently. Secondly, the senior manager must be able to go to a site and use that site without being required to undergo instruction or read manuals before using the site. Web technology is in place to assist these managers in performing at a higher level. Methodologies used in this thesis combine a study using sample web sites, based on the Center for Executive Education Web Site, two surveys, database connectivity, and usability design practices to aid in Internet or intranet based applications. This document contains results from surveys of senior managers that are evaluated to select a suitable methodology for designing Web sites specifically for this subset of users.
