Abstract: The success and power of advanced information systems critically depend upon the quality of the information acquired about the knowledge domain. Effective communication between systems analysts and their clients plays a fundamental role in setting the stage for software quality. Effective communication facilitates co-ordination and co-operation. It also establishes mutual understanding and perceptions that are essential to systems success. The objective of this paper is to contribute to a theory of effective communication for systems analysts when they elicit information requirements for systems design. The model was tested empirically using a content analysis strategy which involved the collection of videotaped protocols that showed verbal and nonverbal communication behaviors of systems analysts. Qualitative findings based on idiosyncratic behaviors were also used for analyzing effective communication. The limitations of this study and its implications for future research are discussed.
