The Wharton MIS program is extremely small, is embedded in a larger, multi-disciplinary Decision Sciences Department, and is perpetually short of resources. This requires the authors at all times to maintain careful focus and direction in all of their teaching and research efforts, and has led them to adopt the following over-riding policy statement: `If it's not worth doing, it's not worth doing well!' It has also led the authors to careful utilization and conservation of their limited resources. The program has two research streams: the coast guard project on model management extends the state-of-the-art in man-machine interaction, model management and complex decision support, while the Reginald H. Jones Center project on information systems, telecommunications, and business strategy has been one of the premier research programs in the strategic and competitive impacts of information technology
