This paper suggests a format for conducting case studies on the issues of centralization and decentralization in the context of MIS. The problems are stated, evidence presented and questions are posed for which operational measures of the variables have been presented. It is hoped that many organizations will be motivated to perform such case analyses in order to generate a body of data on these issues.
