Saturday, January 1, 2000

The additional stress generated by implementing new policy concurrent with implementing a new system appears to be a common complication for CIOs and policy makers. This session described how MSU dealt successfully with this in an 18-month implementation. (David Todd's contribution is a result of his former position at Montana State University.)
