Author : Rolando Gapud and James Linn
This book is based, in part, upon A Decision Maker’s Evaluation of the Firm’s Information System, an unpublished Master’s thesis from the MIT Sloan School of Management (one of the world’s leading business schools) in 1964 by Rolando Gapud.
The information system of the firm can be considered a network. Each line of this network represents a channel of communication, and each node a decision center, an information center, or both. As a decision center, a node can be viewed as receiving information and issuing decisions.
The measure proposed in this book is based upon the assumption that the information system satisfies the decision maker with respect to a specific decision by furnishing him sufficient information to make that decision.
