Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 9170)


The purpose of this paper is to show the impact of decision making about technology in school districts. During our research we found a lot of important information about decision making and forecasting. Furthermore, we also found information on EBusiness, along with Business Strategy, Structure, and Impact. All these important factors come together to help us understand where the Charlotte County’s district went wrong in their decisions with their upgraded system. We explore our findings and present the results of how better planning can help other districts.
