The focus of the workshop is on reviewing how organizations have solved their Y2K problems and how we as academics can learn from what was found. A quick overview of the problem with specific solutions used will be provided to ensure everyone is at the same level. The main topics to be discussed include how the problem came about, i.e. the factors that led to the problem still being present when it has been known to exist for several years; how these factors affect IS education; and where sources of reliable data can be found.
