Dear LO's

Firstly, this use of frameworks to decide which tool to use. There are
many arguments about this. Rather than flood this list with the
arguments, I will happily email interested people a copy of my Masters
dissertation (September 1999) titled "The use of Frameworks in Critical
Systems Thinking'. It is a 240k pdf file.

Secondly, the temporal scale of 7 levels. I have not read Elliott Jacques
work but I came across this concept via a colleague of his at BIOSS,
Gillian Stamp. The temporal scale applies to an individual's time
horizon. It seems a bit of a jump to go from an individual to an
organisational situation or issue.
