Read the passage given below, and answer the questions based on your understanding of the passage:

Rolland Munro describes accountability as an informal giving that is part of everyday conversation, as well as more formal transactions generally involving some sort of documentary artifact (what we archivist refer to as a “record”). He notes that the authors move “between accounts as stories, explanations and reasons for conduct one the one hand and accounts as coded representations, records, often in the form of numbers, on the other hand”. Each of these modes mediates the other in what he refers to as “accountability relationships. ” “Distributions of materials and devices are as much as effect of the giving and calling for accounts, as they are integral to the business of producing and consuming accounts”. Records are both intermediaries in the accountability process and evidence of it.

In our daily language, we often refer to accountability as something that must be achieved, rather than as something that is done informally yet continuously. The difference here is between viewing accountability as a thing represented by and artifact, such as a record, must interact to achieve accountability. In this latter view, the focus on accountability becomes and analysis of the method people use to engage in accountability relations.

Passage

To survive, thrive and beat the competition in today’s brutally competitive world, one has to manage the future. Managing the future means managing the information. In order to manage the information, in order to deliver high quality information to the decision makers at the right time, in order to automate the process of data collection, collation and refinement, organizations have to make Information Technology (IT) and ally, harness its full potential and use it in the best way possible.

We have seen that in today’s competitive business environment, the key resource of every organization is information. If the organization does not have an efficient and effective mechanism that enables it to give the decision-makers the right information at the right time, then the chances of that organization succeeding in the next millennium are very remote.

The three fundamental characteristics of information are accuracy, relevancy and timeliness. The information has to be accurate, it must be relevant for the decision-maker and it must be available to the decision-maker when he needs it. Any organization that has the mechanism to collect, collate, analyse and present high quality information to its employees, ’thus enabling them to make better decisions, will always be one step ahead of the competition. Today, the time available for an organization to react to the changing market trends is very short. To survive, the organization must always be on its toes, gathering and analysing the data-both internal and external. Any mechanism that will automate this information gathering and analysis process will enhance the chances of the organization to beat the competition.
