The Second Canadian Edition of Management Information Systems for the Information Age truly reflects its title. As we enter the 21st Century, information (and the systems by which we deal with it) has become an international commodity and the fundamental basis of dynamic skills.
International Content: The content of Haag has been radically overhauled to reflect the growing trend towards globalization – in addition to over 1/3 of the examples representing companies within Canada, fully half of the examples represent companies outside North America and companies that span more than one nation – a more representative approximation of the world in which students will be working.
Skills-Oriented: In addition to expanded and updated Extended Learning Modules, four new "Skills Modules" are being added to the CD-ROM accompanying the text, focusing on practical demonstration of skills in Excel, Access, HTML, and e-Portfolios. These, along with added exercises and activities, and revised chapter objectives, show students that the information they possess is dynamic, not static – a resource to be used.
