Abstract

Business schools have seen dramatic growth in the acquisition and use of computer systems and technology. The overall purpose of this paper is to investigate strategic issues in the management of business school computer resources. Three surveys conducted in 1984, 1986, and 1988 reveal trends and the current situation. Other research will also be used to gain insights into important strategic issues. This paper discusses technology growth patterns, goal development, strategic decision making, staffing and management issues, budget levels and phases, and strategic support issues. The two most critical strategic issues appear to be adequate funding and a lack of goals and/or strategic planning. All three surveys indicate that these important issues have not been adequately addressed.
