With everything that has been said in Chapter 2 especially with respect to the limits of structuralism, it may seem odd that the previous chapter and this one emphasize an approach with which the object of inquiry—information provided to managers— can be structured. But it is not in any way odd. It has been argued in Section 2.4 that managerial support by means of computer-based information systems must take into account the nature of the social world as being different from a solid natural world. It has also been argued that managerial support must take into account the limits of contemporary computer architectures which separate managerial problems in supportable and non-supportable problems. The academic pursuit of managerial support can thus either lead to “achievable” or “non-achievable” concepts.
