Paper by David Caminer, dated March 1960, possibly the text for an address to executives, on the introduction of computers to a workplace, and how an organisation should assess their individual need for automation.
'It [introduction of a computer in the workplace] might well be a prospect that they view with distaste or even dismay, just as they or their forerunners regarded the introduction of girls in their offices or the substitution of copperplate by typewriters'.
