Information Processing as a Central Concept of Management.
Duncan, Daniel M.
The method most organizations use in processing information to carry on their management goals are inadequate for the modern world. A convergence of theoretical and empirical work can create new ways of thinking about management. Four areas which can help to achieve better organizational procedures need concentrated study: new conceptual tools (for understanding organized complexity), more research work which enhances an understanding of the structure and process of organizations, a realization that an organization's information processing reflects its will for survival, and more extensive subject research based upon actual case studies.
