Computers at work: a behavioural approach
Discusses the advantages, psychological effects, and sociological implications of the computer in the workplace. Considers the full range of problems that occur when computers are operated by humans--from acceptance of the systems at individual, organizational, and public levels, to effectively training personnel--and shows how to avoid or remedy them. Provides information on purchasing both hardware and software, the cognitive skills needed to operate and program computers, and the impact that this new technology will have on established working practices.
