How Concepts Solve Management Problems.
How Concepts Solve Management Problems
This work for managers, researchers, and advanced students presents a step-by-step problem-solving method for dealing with complex organizational, managerial, or socio-technical problems. The method draws on the ideas of pragmatic philosophy, which relies on thinking as a process of using linguistic concepts, selecting the most useful concepts that will be used to think about a problem, and using these agreed-upon concepts as decision-making criteria. Each chapter closes with step-by-step application exercises, which ask readers to draft a report justifying how and why they recommend a particular solution. The book includes concept and process diagrams, summary tables, and bullet points. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
