Abstract

We all know it's easy to overlook important aspects that we take for granted, and overplay the importance of others. Doing this distorts analysis, generates 'Groupthink', makes plans irrelevant, and leads to failure in many projects, especially large information systems projects. How do we ensure everything important is taken into account? The aspects of human life are diverse. Yet all too often are they not reduced to financial or legal ones? If aspects are not given their due, things go awry - not only when planning an information system, but in business decision making, consultancy, strategy-setting, in environmental sustainability, politics, and in many other areas of human life. Even in the aesthetic professions, a film, novel or computer game needs to portray all aspects if it is to be fulfilling and realistic.
