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 or Team Members who work with large volumes of data and are tasked with producing management reports. This programme seeks to empower participants by providing the knowledge necessary to develop a more structured and systematic approach to managing your data and produce reports from IT Systems.
An effective Management Information System is essential 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 one day 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.
