In contrast, a model of a system is necessarily ‘closed’: it is a statement of what is relevant for the purposes of analysis. Things not stated explicitly are by implication irrelevant. What this means in practice is that analysis should investigate the ‘environment’ of a system, in order to determine what is actually relevant. From a given ‘core’ system, chains of purposive and behavioural relationships can be followed outwards. At some stage, a decision must be made that the ‘system boundary’ has been reached, and that everything outside this boundary is viewed as irrelevant (for the particular analysis).
1. We emphasise that the dependencies do not imply strict sequentiality. For example, ‘model Old World’ depends on ‘gather information’. This does not mean that there has to be an Information Gathering ‘phase’ that has to take place before an Old World Purposive modelling ‘phase’. Rather, the diagram should be read as ‘Old World purposive modelling depends on gathering information’. In practice, modelling and gathering information happen side by side, with information gathering being driven (to some degree) by the needs of the modelling activities.
3 Establish the terms of reference 49 • Are certain kinds of change going to provoke opposition? If so, why? • Are particular ways of doing things valued? • Who ought to be involved in the analysis process? An analyst also needs to consider the motivation for the analysis project itself. A common scenario is that one faction within an organisation obtains the services of external consultants to reiterate their own views to other factions (perhaps to senior management). Disinterested opinions from an external source are often assumed to carry greater weight in internal disputes (‘and if they’re this expensive, they must be right’).
