Organizations and Technical Change


    "Organizations and Technical Change" examines the social and managerial processes behind the adoption of new technology. Expanding on his earlier book, "Managing the Adoption of New Technology", David Preece has thoroughly updated his study to examine the key issues of flexibility, choice and the impact of social processes both within and without the organization. Four detailed case studies illustrate the main stages of initiation, progression, feasibility, investment decision, planning systems, design, strategy, objectives and participation. Changes which have occurred since the earlier stage of adoption in the 1980s are also highlighted. This text will be of interest to those involved in management and information technology systems as well as those who wish to have an easily accessible international view of how firms relate to the challenges of new technologies in the 1990s.
