Soft Systems Methodology in Action "Whether by design, accident or merely synchronicity, Checkland appears to have developed a habit of writing seminal publications near the start of each decade which establish the basis and framework for systems methodology research for that decade." Hamish Rennie, Journal of the Operational Research Society, 1992 Thirty years ago Peter Checkland set out to test whether the Systems Engineering (SE) approach, highly successful in technical problems, could be used by managers coping with the unfolding complexities of organizational life. The straightforward transfer of SE to the broader situations of management was not possible, but by insisting on a combination of systems thinking strongly linked to real-world practice Checkland and his collaborators developed an alternative approach - Soft Systems Methodology (SSM) - which enables managers of all kinds and at any level to deal with the subtleties and confusions of the situations they face. This work established the now accepted distinction between 'hard' systems thinking, in which parts of the world are taken to be 'systems' which can be 'engineered', and 'soft' systems thinking in which the focus is on making sure the process of inquiry into real-world complexity is itself a system for learning...

Soft Systems Methodology and Operations Improvement: Effectiveness and applicability in an
Soft Systems Methodology (SSM)has been applied in many industries. A practical critique to its applicability and effectiveness in different contexts is not sufficiently covered in literature. SSM is a human-oriented methodology. This book introduces the reader to soft concepts such as organisational culture and some of the challenges that can occur during change. The book is a reflection on using SSM in a fuzzy situation in an NGO. It includes a narrative about what happened in meetings and a discussion about different aspects of the literature of SSM. The practicality of SSM during the project is discussed based on: (1) the Experience and observations of the author as a facilitator during the project; and, (2) semi-structured interviews with participants.
