Pround Knowledge: Appreciation for a System
“A [man-made] system is a network of interdependent components that work together to try to accomplish the aim of the system. A system must have an aim. Without an aim, there is no system. The aim of the system must be clear to everyone in the system. The aim must include plans for the future. The aim is a value judgment.”
-- W. Edwards Deming, New Economics for
Industry, Government, and Education
