Information Structure of Multi-Level Planning Processes in Self-Management Environment
Information structure of planning processes had been extensively dealt with by the Western GE school, systems engineering theoretical stream (Mesarović), General Systems and Cybernetics (Maiminas, Greniewski, Kornai), etc. In this paper an attempt will be made to examine the information structure of planning processes in a self-management environment, using the concepts developed in afore-mentioned disciplines and modifying them to suit the needs of self-management planning. Generally, these concepts have to be radically changed in order to allow a formal treatment of self-management planning. The objective of the paper is to examine alternative ways of structuring the information dimension to improve on existing and normative planning processes in a self-management environment.
