ideas and their application, and builds on the success of his
previous work with Bob Flood Creative Problem Solving.
book is different from existing texts in the systems field - it
provides a clear introduction to the origins of systems thinking,
concepts and the development of applied systems thinking and offers
an account of 'critical systems practice' which demonstrates how
other systems methodologies, model and methods can be used in
Creative Problem Solving is comprehensive in scope,
offering a brief introduction to all main 'holistic approaches to
management' and demonstrating, with case studies, how each is used
in practice. This straightforward and clear text from an
established author in the field will be welcomed by students and
academics as the 'new' Creative Problem Solving - a comprehensive,
practical guide to a potentially difficult subject.
