Starting with the thesis, I wonder if I should take the current company to explore for my thesis? Is this the first time the candidate studying in non-technology does the thesis with the title related to information technology? I asked Dr Quan many times and got his encouragement constantly I appreciate that! And now, at the time I write these words I cannot believe that I can get the thesis done Despite my thesis going to happen in whatever judgment, the important thing is that the thesis would be submitted and done under my best effort And, at the bottom of my heart, I appreciate all the classmates, friends, and support teachers for giving me a chance and supporting me during the course in the ISB institute EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Working in information technology (IT) for approximately 15 years and dealing with too many matters in daily work, I’m already aware of the importance of management in IT I still remember that day, my direct manager came to see me and shared with me his strategic plan of IT that he proposed for a couple of days to represent to the board of management of the school He was very proud of that plan and was so confident to pursue the audiences I found that plan was weird, but I had no idea and didn’t know how to convince him that the plan should be analyzed and more detailed in a way that after participating in the business course I found out the inappropriate perspectives of it I really was fragile, feeling uncomfortable and thinking about how the plan can prove and have the approval when targeting the members of the management board I found out that there are many IT guys in management having the same concept of doing that I decided to study management as a business administration major, starting with the second degree and master degree I shared this with my boss - the owner of the school - to hold his opinion poll You can guess what I got from what he said, his answering made me feel ashamed He supposed doing business is not necessary to study at all, the businessman is just a man who is naturally familiar with doing business In a business context, experiencing many types of management, he doesn’t trust his employees studying in business administration and their ability to solve the business problems, that is the reason why he was convincing me to stop studying at the beginning of the course and just focus on doing IT Before the thesis, I was thinking whether I can the master thesis in the field of IT? In the thesis orientation, too many questions were sticking in my head I asked Dr Quan whether the thesis of management would be taken in the IT management field? I discussed it with one of my close friends - he was working in the same company - he gave some good advice that I found out was reasonable I decided to not change the company and start with a thesis in the IT field Back to Dr Quan, I still remember that when I was time to meet him and asked him the same questions, I shared with him the point of view of my boss before the orientation took place He indicated that finding a problem that helps the company to sort it out is a good way to prove the effectiveness of the studying He put an idea into my head and asked me to identify the matters of IT in the company and start to scratch from that itch Beginning from lack of confidence in doing the thesis in the IT field, despite being afraid, I was looking into the facts of the matters of IT in the school - where I’m working for There were a lot of distractions happening in the school, the IT department was in trouble with the board of management because of the trust, the IT staff attempted to satisfy the customers of its department The executive board of the school was seemingly not happy with the IT, the communication between IT and other departments was stuck, a gloomy air covered in the IT department When asking a staff in the school about IT, he or she answered that the service of IT is not good, even though the human resource manager supposed that there was something wrong in IT but she did not know how to improve the situation Similar to an ordinary business, there are many regular systems for example, enterprise resource planning (ERP), Supply chain management (SCM), Decision support system (DSS), Content management system (CMS) etc And it is the same in educational organizations, there are plenty of systems oriented to education management for example, management information system (MIS) It is a generic system that can be deprived and customized to adapt to the characteristics of the school, and other aspects like culture, environment, and government To understand in order to deal with the problems in the information technology system and planning in terms of taking various decisions at managerial level I realized that studying management in IT in EMASI schools could be a chance and opportunity to find the critical perspective that led to better management in the IT department Not the same with the traditional way of an IT manager, based on the experiences and the knowledge of IT he or she often thinks about IT management that is to keep the IT running stable and adapt to the business needs I found that to stay away from bias and approach the problem solving in a new way by implicating the PSO (problem solving in organization) model to find out the solution of the school, there was a lot of data, primary data, secondary data and in-depth interviews Ineffective management is not only the problem of the information technology department in EMASI schools, but it could be potential whereas under any form that any regular manager duty is to identify My ambition in the thesis is to identify the causes to lead to the problem of ineffective management in IT Doing in the IT field is an advantage but to explore the problem and resolve the problem, it must have a method and utility or tool in that PSO is a powerful tool that can be implemented in the case CHAPTER 1: INTRODUCTION I Company overview EMASI was founded in late 2017 by Mr Nguyen and extended from the international segment His vision is to build up a group of international bilingual schools with American standard facilities to bring the opportunity equally to every Vietnamese family in Vietnam Based on Vietnamese national curriculum, the international program is integrated and developed by implementing modern teaching methods from developing countries The innovation of the EMASI schools is not converting didactic approach but revamping pedagogy which is student-centered then approach in including project-based learning and equips its students with the ability to become self-motivated learners The school focuses on physical education, developing its students to be masters of the Vietnamese language and proficient in English as native speakers and promote creativity and enrich life The school also committed to provide the highest quality education to Vietnamese families and help the students to well prepare the globalization trend to overcome the barrier of language, culture, knowledge, and skills One of the investors of EMASI school is the Khai Sang Joint Stock company, who's the owner of Renaissance International School which has a strong background in the international education sector Vision: EMASI aspires to be the leading provider of bilingual international Vietnamese and English education in Vietnam Mission: EMASI mission is to provide an outstanding education delivered in Vietnamese and English that emphasizes Vietnamese values, academic and personal excellence and fosters global understanding, respect, and independent learning 10 3VC Yes, but from the begging when I joined the school But until now it is still pending right? B Oh, you know more than I know What would you prefer for doing the report in next month? I mean ISAMS or the Excel? 3VC Well, I feel that it’s hard to use in ISAMS, I prefer to have the report in Excel rather than in ISAMS f) Interview with Ms Dung Le Thi Thuy – Student Affairs - Exploring the potential problem of MIS B Hello Ms Dung Can you share about your doing in student report with the MOET? Does ISAMS support you any thing in that routine job? 3DL Hello anh Just one thing, “met moi” According to the MOET regulation, the bilingual schools should be based on the MOET program The International Program is supportive of MOET, not the main curriculum The assessment method would be controlled by the MOET I suppose this is the main issue that our schools take a long time to integrate and there were some controversial statements between IP and MOET leaders B Would you think it could be solved? What would it help you? 3DL I supposed the way we organize the student data in ISAMS, it should be constant with the MOET, so we want not to update separately instead import by student code B Oh, That’s a good idea Thanks, Ms Dung i) Interview with Ms Vo Le Na – Parent of Nam Long School - Exploring the potential problem of MIS B Hello Ms Na I’m doing a survey to explore about ISAM, I would like to have your idea about using ISAMS from your parent portal? 3VL Hello Mr B Thanks for your support me for my son case in ISAMS last time In my opinion ISAMS is not quite smoothly I’m not good at technology, I want to have it simple to use B What is the issue when you are using ISAMS, I mean parent portal, it’s good or needs to be improved? 90 3VL It’s was a little bit frustrate when I tape to the app in order to read the news IT department should help the school to innovate the way or improve the app so parent can have a better feeling when using iParent module of ISAMS B Thanks for your time, Ms Na g) Interview with Ms Mai Ho Thanh – HR Specialist Nam Long schoolExploring the potential problem of MIS B Hello Mai I’m doing a survey to explore about ISAM, I would like to have your sharing about the structure of EMASI? Why don’t we have principal for Nam Long school? What would be your order in case any command coming from the above level of Nam Long school? 3MH Hello Mr B In Nam Long as you can see, it is structuring to manage by the executive board, so the highest principal is Dr Minh, he is responsible for the “general” principal not only Nam Long but also in Van Phuc Dr Minh is the super-interior head of school of EMASI and now he is also in charge the act of the principal of the Nam Long school, Dr Sheryl is the managing director If there is an order coming from the top of the manager which I cannot act on it, I will ask and listen to my direct manager in HR Ms Lai Truong Is it appropriate right? B Yes, I think so Thanks for your sharing Ms Mai Appendix B: Exploring the management problem for Problem Analysis a) Interview with Mr Thieu Nguyen Anh – Deputy Head of IT – Exploring the potential problem of IT Management B Hello Mr Thieu, I’m doing the PSO project finding out the problem of management in IT Can you share about the management in ISAMS in the Renaissance? TNA Well, it’s good to hear! In Renaissance, ISAMS is under the Academic management, Mr Richard – Deputy of Head of School is the main responsible for the academic process, subject sets organization and method of assessment In the scope of work, IT is not responsible for doing reports in ISAMS B Thank you for your answering In other question I would like to know about how is the IT resources, what is the model of the management? Centralization, distribution? 91 TNA It’s hard to determine, I think Because of saving IT resources, for example internet bandwidth, electricity, monitoring effort etc, all physical servers are dedicated in the same place that it’s called “data center” ISAMS server and database are dedicated and under managed by IT on the top level B To the management ISAMS to support the needs of the school, in that way, you think is it effective or not? What is effective management? TNA It depends on the actual needs, for instance the Renaissance as you might understand There should be a combination between the academic and information technology department that can support each other in doing the integration There is no one who is the decision maker to take action in the MIS system ISAMS is not really so complicated to deploy in EMASI but there is a need for a process and clear structure to have it running successfully If the support tasks would be done so far, I believe that the MIS would be considering as good system that can process and handle task relate to management student records, academic record, and staff records B It’s an interesting discussion Thanks for your sharing b) Interview with Mr Duy Nguyen Xuan Anh – IT Specialist– Exploring the potential problem of IT Management B Hello Mr Duy Can you share about your reporting job in ISAMS, is it interesting or not? 3DN Hi Mr B Yes, it’s in…stress…thing Would you like to join? B Uhm, not actually I think Why you say that? How is the reporting process? 3DN Honestly, it’s not very complicated but associating with leadership team and integrating to the ISAMS are spending much time and effort and sometime frustrated The process has not been designed but assumed Academic staff like teachers, personal assistant assumed that the reports should be in charge by IT First, teachers and academic staff just provide the academic records in Excel file Second, the report templates would be designed Third, IT people link and populate data to produce the report The process has not yet been clearly defined and totally approved, there were some conflictions triggered on Academic staff are fluent in teaching and giving mark to their students, they know what should be reflected in the academic record The report templates should be produced by the academic staff IT is influent in technology and good at technical skills, the tasks which regard to technical, or innovation should be assigned to them They should have 92 the role of support and training rather than take the responsibility in producing academic reports B Hey Duy, anther thing I found your out standing is in a project that oriented to academic What is the achievement and expectation? 3DN Marker space project – it was first implemented to the school by Mr Giang, when evaluating the project In both schools Nam Long and Van Phuc, the marker space was rarely used As Mr Giang explanation, marker space would be created more added value for the schools which has not any school yet implemented The project was expected to create the competitive advantage of the school by BOD because its benefits would be integrated and developed in the STEM education I was dedicated to Da Nang to be trained about how to development STEM projects to integrate to the EMASI curriculum, but I was not happy in the role, each school should have the main in charge person for each marker space The schools are expected to be the leader in technology.” B Oh, it is amazing Thanks for your sharing c) Interview with Mr Giang Le Thanh – Senior IT Manager– Exploring the potential problem of IT Management B Hello Mr Giang I’m finding for my own study about the effective management I would like to ask you some questions regard to the IT management in the school Is it possible for you to share? 2GL Hi Bac B Yes, of-course? B Why you select this way to organize IT in each site? That number of staff is enough for each site? And how can you manage them to deploy the policies of IT? 2GL In each site at school of EMASI, there is one person in charge for communication and execution the policies from our top management direction About technician support, the workload would be shared the whole in-house team then the team on the top and totally approved, there were some conflictions triggered on Academic staff are fluent in teaching and giving mark to their students, they know what should be reflected in the academic record The report templates should be produced by the academic staff IT is influent in technology and good at technical skills, the tasks which regard to technical, or innovation should be assigned to them They should have the role of support and training rather than take the responsibility in producing academic reports B It’s helpful and valuable Can you share about the future of IT? 93 2GL Our school strategy is followed by EMASI’s strategy Global access to information, collaboration, the fostering of critical thinking and creativity skills, and artificial intelligence through our technology program endeavor to meet the learning needs of all students Depending on that our mission is building network infrastructure & hardware based on innovative solutions And concentrating on curriculum and professional development and smart class solutions B Another question Mr Giang Regarding to your department mission, you think who would be appropriate for doing the integration? 2GL Mr Duy Nguyen Xuan Anh is doing good job in designing the association STEM education and support to the school program Marker Space is the most influent aspect that can contribute to the school attraction to the parent B Wow, it’s amazing Thanks for your sharing Mr Giang I love this interesting conversation d) Interview with Mr Van Nguyen Tran Le -IT Support Nam Long Campus – Exploring the potential problem of IT Management B Hello Van I know you are quite not happy with doing support ISAMS but if you are required to do, what would you think? Is it fair for you? 3VN I must work with any requirement to develop my skills, but I think I can learn from a good system rather than the system like this In another school I think the IT can build a better system than ours If I’m forced to so it’s up to my mood In my contract, I have not agreed to the job regards to report in ISAMS, the schools should recruit the one who just focus on doing it B Thank you I think, you are stronger than the other technician I have met e) Interview with Ms Yen Thanh Nguyen – Teacher of MOET – Exploring the potential problem of IT Management B Hello Ms Thanh I know you are quite busy in the report cards in each semester What you think about the current reporting job? 3YN Hello anh Well, all of us must work with that job Most of us is just gradated so we should learn more to develop ourselves We are not afraid to work hard but actual we must work hard, I think We event stayed at school until 9:00 PM to finish entering the mark for students after their taking the assessment We should have ISAMS running report that can help to save time and data consistency 94 B Oh, I see I think, all of you would learn a lot of thing during this work Thanks for your honest sharing f) Interview with Ms Nhi Nguyen – Personal assistant of IP Director– Exploring the potential problem of IT Management B Hello Nhi I know you are a contact point of the IP teachers in each reporting time Can you share about the way you work about the report? 3NN Hi anh The reports at both schools are really nightmare for me I have to work all night to have the files done There are nearly a hundred worksheets for 12 classes in the schools I must the same not only for Nam Long school but also for Van Phuc Teachers are not pay attention on my effort, they just care when and how to input the mark and have the student records I wish to wait until the ISAMS running so the manual report would be no longer remained Do you have any way to improve?

What would be happened by if staff confused about the role? 98 2TNA It’s good question I can share you the way that staff working in each site, they shall align with our top-down management direction The process was approved before my coming so now we just follow, I think it should be improved When the staff is not clear their own role and responsibility so how can he/she reach the objectives and how to show to HR to see our department outstanding B I have heard about a case in Van Phuc, Mr Toan’s case He supposed the HR unfair when he has been fulfilled proper objectives, but his compensation package is still not yet promoted to the current beneficial package?
