The Year 2000 Problem Solver provides a five-step plan for technical managers who are in charge of fixing year 2000 problems. The awareness step offers tips for technical staff on how to communicate the problem to management--a critical part of any year 2000 strategy. The assessment step helps you determine the best strategy for solving the problem, and the renovation step gets you started in the execution of your strategy. The validation step walks you through the testing and quality assurance phase, while the implementation step helps you assess how your company's system interfaces with other systems. Over half of the book is dedicated to listing contact information for vendors who provide year 2000 solutions.
