Abstract

This article suggests a strategy for using Personal Computing to provide decision support to individuals within an organizational context. The growing phenomenon of personal computing is recognized as a valid technological base for providing decision support to individuals. However, the challenge is the exploitation of this capability within an organizational context. In particular, personal computing raises many management control issues. The article suggests a useful distinction between personal decision support and organizational decision support. This distinction is critical in formulating a strategy for personal support within the organizational context.
