View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

This book offers a process for conceiving solutions to complex, wicked, messy, swampy or socio-technical problems. When charged with complex problem solving, a useful set of concepts needs to emerge, be agreed, and acted upon. Using relevant examples and solution mapping, Mike Metcalfe explains how pragmatic philosophy can be used as a process for solving such issues.

To explain why and how to formulate reflective, pragmatic, or concept driven problem-solving, this book uses the concepts of:

- Pragmatic inquiry
- Stakeholders' concerns
- Idea networking
- Solution concepts
- Paradoxical outcomes, and
- Intent (with related actions).

This innovative book will be of interest to academics, postgraduate students and managers charged with solving complex social or managerial problems.

About the Author:

Mike Metcalfe, University of South Australia

Review:

`Metcalfe has provided us with a book that offers practical yet philosophically underpinned tools to seek solutions that work for problems constituted by many and contradictory concerns, i.e. wicked problems. . . Metcalfe's thoughtful expose of problem-solving techniques routed in pragmatism makes you want to go out and do it.' -- Philosophy of Management
