The paper "Providing Software Model for the Management of Archiving, Thread Follow Up and Communication" is a wonderful example of an assignment on management. Based on the culture of research that has been ingrained in Sultan Qaboos University, the department of research seeks to continuously increase its capacity towards research activities so that it can keep up with the dynamic global shifts that trend globally in the present day. In Sultan Qaboos University, the Office of the Vice President for Graduate Studies and Research holds responsibility for scientific research and graduate studies.
Research at the university is imperative enough such that the college research committee is tasked with ensuring that the students and staff have the best environment, resources, and support needed for research activities. Furthermore, scientific research is part of Sultan Qaboos University's strategies of achieving academic excellence and thus the achievement of its mission and vision. In recent times, the Vice President for Graduate Studies and Research has faced complexities in the coordination of meetings and councils with the government and other private agencies. Impending meetings, lack of documentation, follow up and unclear communication has affected the normal functioning of the Office of the Vice President for Graduate Studies and Research.
As a result, the need to develop a system to coordinate and speed up the process towards meeting has arisen. This retro respect paper, therefore, presents a project plan for the implementation of a system that provides a solution to the mentioned afore complexities. 2.0 Business Case This project seeks to provide a software model for the management of archiving, thread follows up, and communication in the Office of the Vice President for Graduate Studies and Research.
The project, therefore, intends to deliver a software program for the solution of the complexities of impending meetings, lack of documentation, follow up, and unclear communication. The project will take three months to fully implement as staff in the department need to be trained on the use of the software.
