Impact of Management in the Flow of information, Case of An International Laboratory
This proposal will focus on identifying the impacts of management in the flow of information in an International Laboratory, particularly the Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde. The identification of these impacts will be significant to International Laboratory as the failures and successes encountered through this information flow strategy will be identified (Bejou, & Palmer, 1998). The main objective of conducting this study is to evaluate the role of management in the flow of information in an International Laboratory and to discuss its contribution to performance of Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde. In order to achieve this objective, the Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde staff will be used as the participants of the study. Specifically, a total of 5 employees will serve as the respondents. Using the interview method, each employee will be asked to provide data regarding their respective laboratories’ success or failure brought about by management in the flow of information. Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde records such as IT evaluation reports, laboratory effectiveness, past and present operation records as well as highlights of the laboratory approaches will also be used to support the results of the interview. All of these data will then be subjected to analysis and presented in textual, tabular and graphic formats. In addition to quantitative data, data gathered from the research process will also be supported by previous literature discussing various cases that applied a similar management strategy.
Aims and Objectives
The aim of this proposed study is to investigate and determine the impact of management to the flow of information to an International Laboratory, particularly the Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde. Specifically, this study will concentrate on the role of management of IT to an International Laboratory. The following will be the main objectives of the study:
- To identify the key drivers of applying IT as a operation and information tool in International Laboratory
- To determine how IT enhances the International Laboratory’s activities
- To analyze the management success or failure of Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde brought about by management in IT utilization
- To recommend ways on how IT can be optimized by Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde for operation purposes
This proposed study will be conducted in order to investigate and determine the different impacts of management of information flow and IT utilization to Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde. Specifically, the impact of management of information flow and IT utilization to Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde will be identified. Two research instruments will be used for this study. These include the interview method and the desktop research (Allen, & Morton, 1994).
The interview method will be used in order to acquire first hand data as well as support secondary information (Creswell, 1994). Relevant records and reports will be the main source of secondary data for this study. This source was selected in order to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the research results. The desktop research will be composed primarily of published articles of similar company cases. As this study will concentrate on Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde and their information flow experiences, the case study approach is the most appropriate research methodology (Creswell, 1994).
The main research question for this proposal is: “What are the impacts of Impact of Management in the Flow of information, Case of An International Laboratory ?”. In order to answer this problem, Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde staff will be randomly selected to participate. This laboratory was identified implementing a specific IT management tool or strategy for about five years or more. Within each of these chosen staff, they will be asked to undergo the semi-structured interview procedure. The Centre Pasteur Du Cameroon Yaounde was chosen for this study as the employees from this laboratory can provide the most accurate and relevant information. In order to test the validity of the semi-structured interview process, the prepared interview schedule will be initially tested to 5 respondents. These participants will not be part of the actual study; however, this procedure will be done in order to detect areas of the schedule that needs improvement or changes.
