Methodologies for the design of soft systems for generations x, y & z

Summarising those seven stage representation of SSM – soft system modeling:

  1. Enter situation considered problematical
  2. Express the problem situation
  3. Formulate root definitions of relevant systems of purposeful activity
  4. Build conceptual models of the systems named in the root definitions
  5. Comparing models with real world situations
  6. Define possible changes which are both possible and feasible
  7. Take action to improve the problem situation

Aspects which separate objectives between design, communication and Interactions for generation ‘Y’, ‘X’ and ‘Z’, the former and its contributory factors to those from later ‘X’ and ‘Z’.

“Following Generation Y, they are typically the children of Generation X; their parents also include the youngest Baby Boomers and some of the oldest Generation Y-ers.”

  1. Exploring in particular active markets in development of systems and / or their software. Consumerist trends and public sector distribution based on supply and demand, both acknowledgement and knowledge of the market place as an enthusiast, student or future developer.

    Neoliberalism is a ‘market driven'[1] approach to economic and social policy based on neoclassical theories of economics that maximise the role of the private business sector in determining the political and economic priorities of the state. The term “neoliberalism” has also come into wide use in cultural studies to describe an internationally prevailing ideological paradigm that leads to social, cultural, and political practices and policies that use the language of markets, efficiency, consumer choice, transactional thinking and individual autonomy to shift risk from governments and corporations onto individuals and to extend this kind of market logic into the realm of social and affective relationships..

    Policy implications

    Broadly speaking, neoliberalism seeks to transfer control of the economy from public to the private sector,[4] under the belief that it will produce a more efficient government and improve the economic health of the nation

    Examining in particular, how these and other practices of advertisers seems to endorse these same shifts instead of dictating how the product should be represented in its established marketplace.

    The organization of the public sector (public ownership) can take several forms, including:

    • Direct administration funded through taxation; the delivering organization generally has no specific requirement to meet commercial success criteria, and production decisions are determined by government.
    • Publicly owned corporations (in some contexts, especially manufacturing, “state-owned enterprises”); which differ from direct administration in that they have greater commercial freedoms and are expected to operate according to commercial criteria, and production decisions are not generally taken by government (although goals may be set for them by government).
    • Partial outsourcing (of the scale many businesses do, e.g. for IT services), is considered a public sector model.

    A borderline form is

    • Complete outsourcing or contracting out, with a privately owned corporation delivering the entire service on behalf of government. This may be considered a mixture of private sector operations with public ownership of assets, although in some forms the private sector’s control and/or risk is so great that the service may no longer be considered part of the public sector. (See the United Kingdom’s Private Finance Initiative.)
    • In spite of their name, public companies are not part of the public sector; they are a particular kind of private sector company that can offer their shares for sale to the general public.
