Functional Requirements and the Theory of Action.
Hills, R. Jean
Educational Administration Quarterly, v18 n4 p36-61 Fall 1982
Responding to Willower's earlier questioning of the concept of systems' functional requirements, the author outlines the Parsonian theory of action, discussing action systems' components (values, norms, organizations, and facilities) and their functional imperatives or requirements (pattern maintenance, integration, goal attainment, and adaptation) and drawing therefrom a paradigm for empirical research.
