Management models: a word of warning “…models and theories offer not solutions to organizational problems, but rather ways to reduce the complexities and uncertainties involved-nothing more, but definitely nothing less.” “…simple memory aids, useful ways of ordering reality” [Have, Have & Stevens, 2003]
But on the up side…? Models …offer valuable insights and a sound framework on the basis of which the right choices can be made…”
