Rational Analysis for a Problematic World Summary

Rational Analysis for a Problematic World: Problem Structuring Methods for Complexity, Uncertainty and Conflict by Johnathan Rosenhead

The purpose of this text is to provide business students with an introduction to a range of methods for structuring decisions and problems, rather than solving them. All methods discussed are illustrated with case histories, which describe the sequence of events by which the method is applied. The format should make it possible for the reader to establish an informal view of what each methodology claims to be able to do.
