Morgan (2006) suggests the following definitions for commonly used terms: Competencies: the energies, skills and abilities of individuals. Capabilities: the collective ability of a group or a system to do something either inside or outside the system. Capacity: the overall ability of an organization or system to create value for others. It is those capabilities that enable an organization to fulfil a function (”to do things”) and at the same time to sustain itself. He identifies “five core capabilities” in organizations and systems: the capability to act, the capability to generate development results, the capability to relate, the capability to adapt and the capability to achieve coherence (Morgan, 2006, p. 8-19).
English (2005) defined BI "quality information in well-designed data stores coupled with business friendly software tool that provide knowledge workers timely access, effective analysis and intuitive presentation of the right information, enabling them to take right actions or make decisions". White (2005) it defined BIS as information systems that provide information and improve its quality that supports decision making and achieves business goals. It divided BIS into two parts: 1) data warehouse 2) access to data, data analysis and reporting. KalKaota &Robinson, (1999) business intelligence systems infrastructure components that support the quality of decision making: 1. Key information technology related to store data (Extraction, transforming
From my own words I can say that, strategic drift is the situation when the strategy of the organization fail to cope with the change in the organization, be it internal changes or external changes or when the organization strategic becomes outdated to the extent of failing or stop to hold relevant to the business environment the organization is exposed to; and that risk management as the process of critically managing the business environment in ways of eliminating risk or reducing risk that can affect the organization and that the process need critical examination and logical sequence of activities for follow; with these any organization in the modern world need to focus on the two issues to ensure the operational and financial health of
The Structural Equations Model (SEM) Our goal here is to provide a measurement of well-being using the capability approach. To achieve this goal, we consider three dimensions of well-being (the capabilities) namely wealth, basic services and housing There
It shows the linkages of the process through the data stores and hot they relate to the user and their environment.

THREE LEADING ADMINISTRATIVE MANAGEMENT THEORISTS; CHESTER BARNARD, HENRI FAYOL AND MAX WEBER AND THEIR SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO ADMINISTRATIVE THEORY 1 INTRODUCTION A theory is developed from a real life observation and attempts to give a widely accepted well-substantiated analysis, explanation, description and interpretation of phenomena in order better understand it.Theory enables us to not only understand phenomena, but to also be able make use of available information to take carefully assessed approaches according to the relative theoretical principles and it enables us to deduce from the present situations future predictions of our reality. The administrative theory attempts to rationally design an organization as a whole consisting of a formalized administrative structure that is hierarchal. It defines individual members within an organization by their specific of roles and responsibilities, making up a collective effort. It calls for a clear division of labour, a common objective as an organization, a clear delegation of power and authority to relevant responsible administrators.

It is a system designed to give information periodically help managers in their decision making processes, in which as argued by researcher affords managers the chance to device profitable decisions for an organisation. Management information systems, uses standardized measures for management to function on all levels with information based on internal and external sources, for efficiency and decision making for directing and controlling various activities. With the above highlighted it is then the task of this research report to identify the role of management information systems in gaining a competitive role to enhance the strategic objective of an organization. In purists of identifying the role of management information systems, a discussion on various elements that shape strategy will be considered. For an organization to gain a competitive role there has to be a level of effectiveness adopted through information systems and the ability for managers to make concise decision for the business.
Management information systems, afford managers the proficiencies to make changes needed to fit an organization’s information system, however within making changes it is best to realise that, these changes have an impact on the functionality of other systems not designed to for a particular process and as a result can affect even the culture of the organization. Innovation and flexibility across an organisation can allow for employees to modify systems as they improve business processes (Knott & Medina, 2012:35). The success of a strategic information system planning is a factor of great observation, when it comes to measuring the success of an organisation. Altameem et al (2014) states that information systems have a very high role in the strategy on an organisation. They assist organisations in conducting day to day activities, allowing the business to function properly, while supporting decision making.
