Due Week 2 and worth 200 points

In 1967, Russell Ackoff presented a classical analysis of misinformation in

management (Ackoffs Management Misinformation Systems, Case 1-2, located in
your Blackboard course shell). Now, you need to fast-forward to the present. After
reading the case, craft your own version of misinformation in management by
developing five (5) key incorrect assumptions that management makes about its
accounting information systems.

to improper assumptions concerning accounting information systems.

assumptions related to accounting information systems and the related
information. Indicate the most negative potential impacts on business
operations related to these assumptions. Provide support for your rationale.
2. Suggest three to four (3-4) ways in which organizational performance may be
improved when information is properly managed within a business system.
Provide support for your rationale.
3. Evaluate the level of system security (i.e., high, medium, low) needed to
ensure information integrity within automated business systems. Provide
support for your evaluation.
