  • 1.1 paper 1.1

  • Describe a Management information system (MIS)
    A MIS consists of at least one person of a certain psychological type who faces a problem within some organizational context for which evidence is needed to arrive at a solution and that the evidence is made available through some Model of presentation.
  • How does the Lockean (Empirical) IS creates "evidence"?
    Lockean is all about facts. You start with a set of raw data or observations. And based on that data you can agree on what facts are. 
    Examples are Databanks, accounting and statistics.
  • How does Leibnitzian (Rational) IS creates "Evidence"?
    Leibnitzian is about if we have the best model, we also will find the best answer.
  • How does Kantian (Collective knowledge) IS creates "Evidence"?
    From intuition to explicit knowledge. Organizational /Enterprise smart
  • How does Hegelian (Normative) IS creates "Evidence"?
    With two conflicting theories.

  • The Jungian typology is the most suggestive of research hypothesis in this subject. This typology is characterized by four major modes of psychological functions. Which four?
    • Sensation: refers to the type of individual who relies primarily on data received by his senses. 
    • Intuition: refers to managers who are more data-free and make conclusions based on no data.

    Evaluation (Judge)
    • Thinking: Refers to the type that relies on abstract true/false judgments.
    • Feeling: is more about the type that relies on a moral component.  Good/bad, pleasant/unpleasant etc.
  • A designer of MIS, what is important to do considering the Jungian typology?
    A personality is a blinding and contrating of all the types. So no one will be purely one type. For a MIS designer it is important to give each type the kind of information he is psychologically attuned to and will use most effectively.
  • What is the difference between Tacit knowledge and Explicit knowledge?
    With tacit knowledge, think of personal qualities that are hard to formalize and communicate. Explicit knowledge is transmittable for example in a description
  • What is following Nonaka important to avoid when creating a database?
    Avoid Garbage in Garbage out (GIGO)
