Information Handling, Organizational Structure, and Power.
Buckland, Michael K.
Journal of the American Society for Information Science, v40 n5 p329-33 Sep 1989
Uses examples from military strategic communications to demonstrate that organizational structures and the distribution of power within organizational structures adapt to changes in information handling capability. It is concluded that delegation and decentralization can be viewed as indicative of inadequate information handling and that improved information handling can be expected to centralize power.
