Effective Information Systems: What's the Secret?
Kirkham, Sandi
Electronic Library, v12 n3 p177-81 Jun 1994
Argues that false assumptions about user needs implicit in methodologies for building information systems have resulted in inadequate and inflexible systems. Checkland's Soft Systems Methodology is examined as a useful alternative. Its fundamental features are described, and examples of models demonstrate how the methodology can facilitate analysis of communication requirements. (Contains three references.) (KRN)
