Abstract

Private sector experience with management information systems (MIS) education points to the need for a formalized educational curriculum to train those going into systems management in the public sector. Current studies indicate that systems management personnel lack a balanced combination of technical and organizational skills. It is revealed that college and business school curriculum requirements are inadequate in preparing students for the organizational aspects of the systems analyst's job. Suggestions are made to implement a system laboratory approach that will prepare students for both technical and organizational problems in the 'real world' of the public sector.
