Boulden, 1975

In a pioneering book on computer-assisted planning systems, James Boulden (1975) wrote, "Traditional organizational planning assumes a seriality of planning activities oriented to functional departmentalization. This fragmented sequential process is a most inefficient way of planning when compared with the holistic perspective of the computer-based system which permits concurrent and cooperative planning activities involving managers at various levels and functions in the organization." (p. 86)
