Because the 1970s will see accelerated changes from technology toward humanism, management systems will also change. We must learn to deal with more complex social values; work in an increasingly political environment; and deal with organizational inertia and fragmented markets. Organizations will change to deal with the fluidity of the world around them; so must managers, by using the information systems and quantitative and behavioral techniques at their disposal. 10 pp.
