Plurality and Change: Problems of Value, Method and Analytical Approach
This chapter is largely a digression away from the themes of the rest of the book. It has been written, and much of the thinking in it has developed, subsequent to and as a consequence of the work described in later chapters. It constitutes an attempt (which will not be relevant to the needs of all readers) to examine the legitimacy of our role as academic social scientists involved in a programme of industrial change, as well as to test the analytical framework we have used, and to discuss concepts such as ‘performance’ and ‘improvement’ that are elaborated in part III.
