The research outlined in this chapter is concerned with current practice in relation to decision support systems (DSSs) in small businesses. The purpose of this research (based on a survey approach) was to identify managers’ needs for computer-based support, and to explore if and how computer-based DSS could be better developed and utilized to meet these needs. Factors that hamper the utilization of DSS in small firms are also discussed.
