A pioneer in timesharing, Richard Crandall, a University of Michigan graduate, formed Comshare and was its CEO for over 25 years. He describes the evolution of Comshare from its focus on interactive use of computers, through its transition to marketing software products, and to its eventual concentration on executive use of personal computers for business management information and decision support systems. He was Chairman of ADAPSO and its leader in strategic planning as well as an active participant in many committees including the Industry Image Committee. He organized and has been the coordinator of a software company CEO Roundtable since 1994. This oral history was sponsored by the Software History Center in conjunction with the Center's ADAPSO reunion (3 May 2002).
