Galbraith, 1970). Not only the amount of information but also reaction time (or ‘frequency of decision’ in Thompson’s words) characterize this type of co-ordination.

The approach to an organizational behaviour thus presented, based on the open/closed system analogy, constitutes the framework to be used for the coming company analysis.
Such a strategic issue is, for example, the relevance of the large-scale national information centres, which are prestigious institutions with very high computing capacity. ). 20 Computers in developing countries Strategical problems can be regarded from a more general level in a broader perspective on technology. Stewart suggests: Technology consists of a series of techniques.

General models are therefore no more general than the underlying world view of their originators. In other words, no model can claim absolute credibility. ‘Our knowledge is never completely certain’ said Karl Popper, one of the most influential philosophers in the theory of science.

First, a computer program is regarded by many as the result of a consensus decision where the most appropriate model has been selected to be transformed into a computer program.
