Systemic Intervention

  • Gerald Midgley
Part of the Contemporary Systems Thinking book series (CST)


Having answered the basic question ‘why methodology?’, I can now begin to lay out my own methodological ideas, starting with a definition of the term ‘intervention’. This will provide a foundation for bringing together, at the end of this chapter, the systems idea (the meaning of which was touched upon in Chapter 3) and ‘intervention’ in order to produce a definition of systemic intervention. Finally, it will be possible to present an outline of the systems methodology I have developed, that will be fleshed out in the coming chapters.
