It is to be specifically noted that the resources of the DC are not to be confused with the resources managed by the DC (provided that the DC is a resource management function -otherwise it does not even dispose over other resources than those needed to carry out its own management task). These latter managed resources are described in the decisional variables of the DC which the DC has the authority to manipulate (and thereby to allocate, distribute, or control them). 4 The Co-ordination of Decision Centres Links of DCs In addition to the DF provided to a DC by another DC above or on the same level of the decision hierarchy DCs obtain information from the management information system; from other DCs (via information links); from the management information system (MIS) that collects, aggregates and presents information about the operation (service and production); from the external environment, (via information links); Similarly, a DC provides information output, which includes the DFs determined by the DC for another DC, and information to other DCs (on either level of the decision hierarchy); the MIS; the outside environment.

Personal objectives) with the organisation's decisional objectives - although personal objectives are not under the co-ordination / control of the management system, they can not be ignored. 6 T h e D e c i s i o n C e n t r e as a n O r g a n i s a t i o n a l R o l e DCs are functionally defined, and various ways exist to assign management personnel to DCs. Therefore a DC is, from the point of view of organisational design [6, 4]), is a management role to be assigned to an organisational entity, or actor / agent - such as an individual, committee, or board.

To date, we have extended Yourdon and Constantine's work on coupling [16] to a distributed environment to form a basis for the development and comparison of application architectures [13, 14]. 1 Information Technology C h a n g e Initiatives In our experience, the information technology structure of an enterprise is the result of management reaction to successive tactical needs. When there is a perceived need for change, an individual assessment is made and a response is implemented. New technology is then brought in, without too much regard for the impact that the new system should have on the rest of the organisation.
