and data visualization. Chapters provide an in-depth and practical
consideration of these topics, focusing on the use of information systesms for
managerial decision making. Designing Management Information Systems covers the
topics of key performance indicator monitoring, and of shortlisting and
selecting alternatives from a range of options. These are managerial decisions

basis. This is the first book offering practical guidance on how systems should
be designed to support these decisions.
It is written for managers, those studying business, management, and IT, and
those developing MIS on behalf of management.
