This collection of papers is written by the participants in a workshop held at IIASA. It is thus not only a collaborative paper but also a conference proceedings in the true sense of the word. It thus differs from many conference proceedings which present a collection of papers tabled at a conference but which do not seriously describe what happened at the conference. It is not therefore a collection of reporting of individual research; it is a pre-research study leading to individual research and to other collaborative work. Nevertheless, although there is little here that is "new", we feel that the importance of the subject is such that the findings of the workshop should be made available to a wider audience. One reason for this is to encourage wider collaboration between IIASA and research teams working in this subject elsewhere. The research already planned envisages collaboration with research teams in the U.S.A., U.K., Japan, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and the U.S.S.R. Collaboration with other teams actively engaged on studies of the impact of small scale computer on management and organization would be welcomed.
