Title: ON THE IMPACT OF THE NEW MICROPROCESSORS ON MANAGEMENT STRUCTURES
Authors: Witten, Ian H.
Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: 1-Jan-1982
Abstract: A wide-ranging assessment of the impact of the new technology of microprocessors on organizational structure and management, this paper forsees radical changes in the activities of computer-based product design, as well as a shift in the role of the computer services division. The economics of information processing, coupled with the shortage of computer programmers and system designers, will lead to new methodologies of software production based on inventories of documented and commissioned modules. The growing sophistication and decreasing cost of systems to support hardware and software development will remove some functions from the computer services division to individual development laboratories; these will be replaced by a new responsibility for managing company-wide communications in both administrative and technical domains.
