“An executive information system (EIS) is a computer-based information system designed to provide senior managers with access to information relevant to their management activities. The use of these systems by executives may become a particularly important component of their decision making behavior. The effects of EIS use on aspects of the decision making process are examined by surveying 46 executive users of EIS. The frequency of EIS use and the length of time of EIS use are shown to increase problem identification speed, decision making speed, and the extent of analysis in decision making.” Leidner, Dorothy E.
