This week we’ll be looking at the topic of Information. We need to look to

  • Understand management information needs: the concept of relevance and methods of interpretation. 
  • Understand that information has many characteristics and can be classified in many ways. 
  • Discuss the value of information in aiding the decision making process. 
  • Understand the difference between internal and external information requirements.
  • Describe the characteristics of good information and delivery.
  • Describe the advantages and characteristics of good information within an applications context.

A decent set of notes can be found here, taken from the Fatmax website. Summarise, or add to them as you see fit.
