A2.1 identifing the key actors in the environment
* Grants for funding from local government agency to give services to elderly people who have programs serviced by AgeCare organsation. * Funders (external) make funding to AgeCare to produce charity service effectively * Elder people are donated services like education program, shopping, health,etc. by AgeCare Organisation. * CEO, (Chief Executive Officer) manage projects and staffs at each centre. * Finance Director deals with finance used in projects.
* Admin Staffs administer AgeCare problems departments by departments. * Lead worker leads workers (staffs) to run projects
* Volunteers involve working in transport services.
* Staffs (Part time, full time) work in centres of AgeCare. A2.2 Identifing the key issues and areas of conflict affecting this environment, suggesting reasonsfor these. Key Issues of AgeCare
Get at least 2 years Funding body for to be AgeCare program started for charity services to make. Because if it can't, project can't run to deliver its services. The second one is Government allows that AgeCar gives for charity services based around the needs of elder people. There are many centres that need to manage by head offices in running projects. Critical Analysis of AgeCare Business Environment in Case Study It does not clear which branches have to take projects that offer service, it's said that the nearest centre has to take projects. We do not sure that it isdepending on the area where centre exists in the projects received. It's difficult to collect different formats are used in projects by each of cenres (Data collections becomes inconsistency using various formats may be caused information wrong). If resources are not used effectively, projects are not worth to make funding (it was happened wasting resources and money to make that kind of work). If project size is large, AgeCare can't get full time staffs because of funding is not enough for large projects to use many costs. A2.3 Main focus of the system that theorganisation requires
The analysis view of AgeCare Organisation's high level requirements It has been dependent upon the Government agency which gives grants to AgeCare to make donations with programs to run for elder people. Full Budget that it should make ensure at least 2 years funding is required to start Projects run to give charity services to Elder people who're living in Canterbury and in the surrounding area and villages. So, we should think of funding to get as much as from funders for large projects. Analysing the situations in some structures of AgeCare, if project did not get enough funding for services, full time staff will not always be available until the project is finished. Focusing by the side of an analyst, AgeCare Environments can't control well to its centres so it should fix that problems that's without having central control system in communication between head office and centres of AgeCare. AgeCare Centre is needed “Central Administration System” that can be managed to its' branches for control and also database should be secured the whole AgeCare environments including all its branches. Because If it can't, Head offices can't control its branches and also - Centres allocated in AgeCare which were not found standard data procedures for communication. So, centres can be received wrong info sent by head office. AgeCare should produce reports for Trustees and managers to help making decisions. Reports producing can help them in their work focusing the conditions of problems that will be happened in the future and so overcome problems are in AgeCare. And also AgeCare is also required in managing not only info with different formats but aslo managing staffs relationships in each centre of AgeCare. Because although if we can communicate with the right data, there're still needed to control administration process in centres for staffs. AgeCare needs a JAD workshop that takes AgeCare staffs...
