  10. 10. Command function principle: command and control modelInformation Management technology decisions Support function principle: collaborative and cooperation model
  11. 11. The command function (PESTOR)• based on command and control• a clear division of responsibilities• a residual component of authoritarianism• hierarchical decision-making processes• possibly not compatible with collaborative models.
  12. 12. The support function principle• non hierarchical and based on networks• encourages flows and cascades of information• it is easy to identify the manager of a particular function in a different unit• difficult to apply the principle of command, which is poorly articulated• difficult or impossible to integrate with command function-based systems.
