Multimethodology: The Theory and Practice of Combining Management Science Methodologies
by Professor John Mingers, Warwick Business School and Anthony
Gill, Phrontis Limited
recent years the number of methods, techniques and methodologies
within the broad field of OR and systems has burgeoned. There
is now an enormous variety of approaches, all having very diverse
characteristics and often underlying theories and philosophies.
In practice, individuals tend to use only a small number, often
only one. The editors argue that the complexity of the world
faced by managers actually necessitates the combination of different
methodologies, both hard and soft, within a single intervention.
This book explores the design of such multimethodologies in both
theory and practice.
