Systemigrams: A 30 Year Retrospective

Thu, 10/18/2012 - 12:37 -- bsauser

Peter Checkland published in 2000 a paper titled, "Soft Systems Methodology: A Thirty Year Retrospecitve." Systemigrams and Boardman's Soft Systems Methodology are coming up on their 30 year anniversary and it would be interesting to do something similar. This project is to do just that.

Project Title: 
Systemigrams: A 30 Year Retrospective
Description: 

1. Scope: reviews the development, evolution, and contributions of systemigrams and boardman’s soft systems methodology (you can use Checkland’s paper as a guidance on how to do this).

2. The paper should also discuss how systemigrams compare to other similar systems thinking techniques.

3. The paper should include in an appendix which should include: 1) listing of ALL the publications that have used a systemigram (APA reference format); 2) a five to ten word statement on what the systemigram was used for in each paper; and 3) a list of all the organization that have used a systemigram as cited in the papers.

* Please only take this project on if you have the sincere interest to do it well.
