FRANKFORT, KY, Nov. 4, 2004 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Marina Havan, an executive consultant with PlanGraphics Inc., is the author of a chapter in the new book GIS Implementation for Water & Wastewater Treatment Facilities, published by the Water Environment Federation.
Havan wrote a chapter on change management.
"The book was designed to deal with GIS implementation from soup to nuts," she said. "Working closely with clients, more often than not the challenge of implementing GIS and other systems is dealing with the organizational and business process changes that are required to leverage new systems."
Havan has been a consultant with PlanGraphics since 1994; her chapter draws on her experience managing GIS implementation in a number of utility projects.
The book is available from the WEF's website, www.wef.org. WEF is a not-for-profit technical and educational organization, founded in 1928, that focuses on the preservation and enhancement of the global water environment.
