|Abstract: ||Top managers through the decisions they make about the organisation can ruin or promote the organisation.
Executives (top managers) in organizations need information to make reliable decisions that are in line with the organization’s plan and mission. Since they operate on the strategic level of the orgsnisation, they need to have a panoramic view of the organization.
They need a good presentation of integrated internal and external information for the navigation of the organization in the right direction. A reservoir for information in form of a data warehouse or database and a means of analyzing, summarizing and presenting data there from are important components that modern organizations should
not live without. An Executive Information System (EIS) is thus necessary for analyzing
information from an integrated source and presenting it to top managers lest they make poor unfounded decisions that can cost the future of the organization. A good decision by top managers is an asset to the organization just as a bad (unfounded) is a liability.
Interviews, questionnaires, direct observation and content analysis gave the picture of what information top managers need. The researcher analysed the current system and then designed a new system for the organization.|
