The use of enterprise wide system (EWS) packages is growing rapidly, as is the list of questions being raised about these packages. This paper looks at the issues raised in some of these questions and suggests that they are really special examples of management issues discussed by theorists from at least the early 1960s. The broader implication drawn is that it would be profitable to see the use of EWS technology as a management strategy.
