Revised and extended article on Wicked Problems and GMA

For those who might be interested, a revised and extended version of “Wicked Problems: Structuring Social Messes with Morphological Analysis” is available for download at AMG:

Go to: http://www.amg.swemorph.com

The extended text mainly concerns how GMA stacks up against some of Rittel and Webber’s criteria concerning “wicked problems”, plus a short lament over how this “term d’art” is being abused by quick-fix consultants, and turned into a media buzzword.

Cheers,

Tom
