Multi-modal thinking in soft systems methodology's rich pictures
TLDR
The framework is based on theories behind multi‐modal thinking and is incorporated in Soft Systems Methodology and in order to test its applicability the framework is used in an empirical study.
The Use of Soft Systems Methodology to Enhance Group Creativity
Soft Systems Methodology is especially useful in diagnosing and addressing organizational problems and designing new systems in cultures that are characterised by pluralistic views and values. This
Schools of Systems Thinking - Development Trends in Systems Methodology
TLDR
Systems Concrete Living Systems Organized Complexity Systems Where Consequences Are of Interest (Limited Teleological Categories) and Systems Whereconsequences are of interest (limited Teleological categories) are studied.
The use of soft systems methodology as a tool for creativity

Soft Systems in Software Design
TLDR
This paper explores the possibility of applying soft systems thinking as a basis for designing application software and it outlines a new method for software design called ‘Rapid Systems Modelling’.
A theoretical base for high-level simulation of organizational information systems
TLDR
The design of organisational information systems is a study of the complex and is the sum total of all that contributes to the human activity in the Human Activity System.
The Analytic Hierarchy Process and Systems Thinking
TLDR
It is claimed that there can be found a common foundation for the complementarist use of AHP with other well known systems methodologies.
Transforming organisations - (some) insights form complexity theory
TLDR
An approach to organisational transformation which was developed by action research is presented, used as the theoretical basis for transformation model called Conditioned Emergence and two industrial applications of this model are described.
Using a Systems Thinking Perspective to Construct and Apply an Evaluation Approach of Technology-Based Information Systems
TLDR
This approach consists in building a theoretical model to be used as a purposeful observation lens, producing a clear picture of the problematic situation under study and aimed at providing knowledge to prescribe corrective actions.
