Abstract

This study draws on relevant literature from Europe and the USA to show that there have been a number of reported failures of Executive Information Systems (EISs) in practice over the last decade. Design concerns, such as data access, ease of use, and graphical presentation, have been emphasised, but there is no consensus in the literature as to what may be critical to EIS success. The results of a survey of UK executives is used to suggest that the central focus of EIS design and implementation should be on the scanning of corporate external environmental information and the provision of meaningful strategic information.
