Abstract

Outlines a new methodology which might explicitly assist learning in schools by complementing the traditional focus of subject specialists with an ordered approach to the appreciation of complex human problems. Developed over the last 25 years at Lancaster University, initially to solve industrial problems, soft systems methodology is a neutral holistic framework that makes very few assumptions about situations yet to be discussed. This explorative style gives no guarantee of the end result, unlike the repeatable problems of science and technology: participants manage the framework to suit their interpretations of problems which are invariably unique.
