The systems development and programming group may be organised in a variety of ways. Because of the interrelationships between the steps in overall process of converting to computer processing, it is tetter to organise this group in teams each of which is responsible for the systems analysis block diagramming, programming, debugging and conversion of an entire application.
In general, a team consists of from two to five: persons, headed by a senior systems analyst.
Normally personnel for systems analysis and programming come from within the organisation, and are trained in computer techniques. It is easier to teach the machine to someone who knows the data processing problem than it is to teach the problem to someone who knows the machine.
