The book builds a bridge between the 'soft' and 'hard' MS/OR and provides an empirically based framework in which to place them. It focuses on modelling as an activity rather than on models and techniques and argues for its relevance alongside intuition, vision and leadership. It also stresses that systematic thinking and analysis has a role to play in organizational life. Mike Pidd shows how models can be employed to explore possible future scenarios and to make sense of managerial vision.A third edition is required to keep up to date with developments in Operations Research, Modelling and Management Science. The book will be updated throughout and the chapter on Heuristics will be replaced by one on Decision Analysis.
