This article relates contingency theory management to the EDP function of the organization. The technology and environment of an organization establish the organization’s position on a continuum ranging from closed/stable/mechanistic to open/adaptive/organic. The application of this concept is interesting and useful for the EDP manager. Two components of the EDP function, production and development, are related to managerial contingency theory.
