Information & Management in Modern Society: From Theory to Practice


The review of the textbook by a well-known specialist in the field of document management M. V. Larin “Information Support of Management” (Moscow, RGGU, 2018) analyzes the author’s contribution to studying evolution of document management software in the digital turn and formation of information society. The reviewer thinks that the textbook marks a new stage in the development of conception of the role of document specialist in the modern management, perception of document and office work changing, as document becomes a management resource that requires a systematic approach to collecting, storing, and using management information, for which, in fact, information and document support of management is responsible. M. V. Larin realizes a multi-level approach to analysis of the issue, covering theoretical, regulatory, technological, and historical aspects of the organization of data processing. He puts information business processes into the context of information society development. In addition to theoretical and methodological problems of information and document support of management, the textbook focuses on practical issues of organizing electronic document management, forming organization’s information infrastructure, problems and prospects for development of e-government and information management. The reviewer believes that this topic remains little-studied and is thus of both scientific and practical interest. The textbook is an organic combination of theoretical and practical material supplied by the necessary didactic elements: questions for discussion and control, lists of sources and literature to organize teaching and learning activities.
