Information in Action Summary

Information in Action: Soft Systems Methodology by Lynda Davies

The book shows how information management can be treated as an active learning process in which computer-based technology can be both supportive and enhanced. Information is brought into focus as the key aspect of information management with technology being viewed as complementary. Soft systems methodology shows how the technical aspects of managing information can usefully be treated as techniques for systematically managing learning and change. This is how information in action is created, used, and reconstructed, through learning.
