Abstract


In today's global economy, the personnel management of enterprises is based on the use of informative data and for this reason the methodical and effective managing of information, plays a huge role. In this project we are looking forward to recognizing the features of the informatics needfulness in the small enterprises and the practices/techniques ofinformation technology that a company uses .A company’s information technology (IT) structure and its brand architecture are intended to minimize transactional costs both within the organization, and between the organization and its customers.

Moreover, we will examine the basic qualifications that the users of management information systems should be able to know as well, in order to demand a work position in a technology field and how managersdevelop a job description that a company needs. A job description is a list of the general tasks, or functions, and responsibilities of a position. Typically, it also includes to whom the position reports, specifications such as the qualifications needed by the person in the job, salary range for the position, etc. A job description is usually developed by conducting a job analysis, which includes examining the tasks and sequences of tasks necessary to perform the job. The analysis looks at the areas of knowledge and skills needed by the job. Note that a role is the set of responsibilities or expected results associated with a job. A job usually includes several roles. The process of developing a job description helps managers articulate the most important outcomes that company needs from an employee performing a particular job.

In addition we will analyze the role of information technology in measuring the responsibilities of each employee
