The preceding chapter has gone into some detail to describe the systemically desirable aspects of comparison. Looking at the seven-stage model of soft systems methodology as shown in figure 2.1, we see that the analysis of comparison cuts across stages five and six. This is the problem with the seven-stage model. It does not make separations which are always useful between the sets of activities. The revised model of the methodology as shown in figure 2.2 is of more use when considering where we are now in relation to the methodology. We have just dealt with comparison of the models with the perceived real situation and are now moving on to the phase dealing with action needed to improve the situation. Going back to the seven-stage model shows that we have not yet considered culturally feasible change. This chapter deals with considerations of change, particularly culturally feasible change, and attention is paid to action and how it may be achieved.
