Managing Information highlights the increasing value of information and IT within organizations and shows how organizations use it. It also deals with the crucial relationship between information and personal effectiveness. The use of computer software and communications in a management context are discussed in detail, including how to mould an information system to your needs.

The book explains the basics using real-life examples and brings managers up-to-date with the latest developments in electronic commerce and the Internet.

The book is based on the Management Charter Initiative's Occupational Standards for Management NVQs and SVQs at level 4. It is particularly suitable for managers on the Certificate in Management, or Part 1 of the Diploma, especially those accredited by the IM and Edexcel (formerly BTEC).

Managing Information is part of the highly successful series of textbooks for managers which cover the knowledge and understanding required as part of any competency-based management programme. The books cover the three main levels of management: supervisory/first-line management (NVQ level 3), middle management (Certificate/NVQ level 4) and senior management (Diploma/NVQ level 5). Also included are titles which cover management issues in particular sectors, such as schools or the public sector, in more depth.
