Decisions on organizational arrangements for MIS units comprise location in the organization, rank of responsible executive, organization of MIS implementators, degree of centralization, the user interface, the study group, the steering committee, the data base administrator, the corporate computer staff, and external assistance. Based on a wide-ranging survey of papers in the field of MIS, the authors have formulated guidelines which derive from the impact of organizational decisions on the success or failure or MIS and MIS projects.
