A good information systems manager is able to see the big picture. Like a master chess player, an information systems manager anticipates the moves that will take a company or organization to the next level.
What Do Information Systems Managers Do?
Planning out the computer and information related needs of a company or organization is just one aspect of this career. Information systems managers also research new methods of gathering information, and facilitate changes in software and hardware in order to make communication and the sharing of information timely and effective at the workplace. This includes creating and managing networks and intranets, as well as managing the workload of employees. This is why an information systems manager needs to be friendly and personable, since he or she will work with a variety of people on a number of important communication-related issues.

Launch Your Career in Information Systems
In order to break into this field , you will need a degree in information systems. This field is expected to continue to grow through 2014. An information systems manager made around $92,570 in 2004, so you want to get that degree and start accumulating experience. One day soon you could be calling the shots.
