Managing Information Systems: Providing Practical Solutions to Housing Practitioners is a one-day course that is aimed at staff working in Housing Sections of Local Authorities.
This intensive training course will be of particular relevance to those who work on the coalface of Housing. Participants may work as line managers and manage a team of staff or may be a Team Member. Participants may work with large volumes of data and are required to produce reports regularly to management. This programme seeks to empower participants by providing the knowledge that will help develop a more structured and systematic approach to managing your data and help you produce reports from your Systems.
An effective Management Information System is an essential tool for processing data in a manner that provides accurate and current information to management and thereby facilitate strategic decision-making. Planning, controlling and administrating are the main components of such a system and therefore form the basis of this training programme.
Given that iHouse is the system most commonly used by Local Authorities, it will be referred to in this training.
The course will explore business tools and techniques that will help Local Authority staff identify problems and define and implement solutions. It is delivered as part of the Housing Training Network.
