The study focuses on the improvements in planning effectiveness and information selection that may result from a change in information processing technology at the middle management level. The subjects selected for inclusion in this study are branch managers and insurance executives from eight of the largest property-liability insurers. Participants were asked to work with and evaluate the comparative benefits of two information sources, one representing current practice and the other representing new information technology. The latter information system utilized a computer terminal and interactive data accessing and forecasting routines.
