    Get this from a library! Idealized design: creating an organization's future. [Russell Lincoln Ackoff; Jason Magidson; Herbert J Addison] -- What's the best way to drive fundamental, transformative change within your organization? Envision your ideal solution: then, work backwards to where you are. It's called idealized design, and this. Visionary planners began to develop a fourth approach that was to result in the process of idealized design on which this book is based: Interactivism—Interactive planners reject the approaches of the other three planners. They plan backward from where they want to be to where they are now.

      Russell Ackoff, a pioneer of systems thinking, has formulated the latter approach and calls it Idealized Design. Idealized Design solves problems by first thinking about the ideal solution and then working back from there to today. Doing it how we most often do it, starting from today and moving towards the ideal, can be limiting. Idealized Design, Jacksonville, North Carolina. 89 likes.
