Improved management practice places a strong demand on modern organisations struggling to cope with challenges of changing environment. Experience has shown that middle/senior officers in most organisations have low level awareness and appreciation of the usefulness of computer in solving their day-to-day management problems. To meet this demand, managers must take advantage of the micro-computer as a versatile tool for efficient and effective information management and decision-making.
This course, therefore, seeks to introduce senior/middle managers to the use of the micro-computer as an essential tool for effective information management. At the end of the course, participants should be able to:
- Describe the role of the micro-computer in management
