Abstract : The paper is the text of a talk delivered at a Symposium which was concerned with management problems in developing computer based systems. It treats the issues in broad terms and attributes past difficulties mainly to the nature of man-made systems and partly to the nature of computer programming. The reasons are discussed at some length and possible solutions are explored.
