By H. Arsham on October 2, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Formerly a professor of Systems Science at Portland State University, Linstone has written and/or co-authored several works on related topics such as social implications of technological developments. His 20 years of experience in the aircraft industry at Hughs and Lockheed further certify his credentials as an expert in systems analysis and operations management.

In his latest book, reviewed presently, Linstone describes three perspectives from which socio-technical systems may be viewed. Not merely mathematical formulae or computer models, these perspectives encompass particular sensitivities on the part of the individual or group that's conducting a critical analysis of a system, corporation, decision or other entity that's appropriately subjected to such scrutiny. The technical perspective (T) sees organizations as hierarchical structures, modeled using principles from system dynamics, to which decision analysis and other tools of management science may be applied. By contrast the organizational perspective (O) considers the strength of an organization relative to competitors. Effectiveness of an organization's leadership and the structure of its corporate chart are the main concerns of the O perspective. The third perspective, personal (P) focuses on those concerns that relate more directly to individuals. Job security and opportunities to advance with the organization are the domain of the P perspective.

That each of the three perspectives yields insights about a system that are generally not obtainable with the others is a central theme of Linstone's book.
