Abstract

This study examines the administrative use of computer technology by teams in professional baseball, basketball, football, and hockey. Fifty-one of these 102 highly visible organizations completed questionnaires indicating the number of computers they have, the type of software used for various managerial tasks, training methods, and the main computer problems they face. The findings that teams with similar information processing requirements have considerable variety in the number of minicomputers and microcomputers they use are discussed. The main user training approach involves using a knowledgeable staff member. The main problems teams face with computer technology are associated with user training, making better use of current hardware and software items, decisions involving an understanding of new technological advances, and scarce resources.
