Ackoff identifies five assumptions commonly made by designers of management information systems (MIS). With these assumptions, Ackoff argues that these assumptions are in most cases not justified cases, and often lead to major deficiencies in the resulting systems. To overcome these assumptions and the deficiencies which result from them, Ackoff recommends that management information system should be rooted in a management control system.

Structured Programming advocated using only the fundamental logic constructs of Sequence, Selection, and Iteration and the introduction of a readable logic style using indentation to show subordination. Object Oriented Programming was also introduced in the 1960s to modularize the coding activity.
Today, these techniques are so widely used as to be taken for granted. Nonetheless, they represented a fundamental leap forward in the evolution of systems development towards an engineering discipline.
