The activities which will lead to change will include meeting with the management team, do a SWOT analysis and come up with new objectives, meet with other employees to discuss the desired changes. After the changes have been agreed upon, come up with the right people to be in the administration, develop the right procedures for purchasing and tracking. Decide on where to purchase the SAS for ten users and purchase it. After this the workers who are not computer literate can be trained. Evaluation will be based on the satisfaction of our customers and if we are capturing the market. The amount of revenue being generated will also be used as an evaluation tool.
