  • 3. Philosophy of the Planner
    • Constructivist change management
    • We construct (and reconstruct) our knowledge , actions and arrangements so that we can
        • know what is happening
        • make sense of what is happening
        • respond to what is happening
    • In our more successful practices: we work with others work on the systems; focus on what works ; and make it is easier for the next person to do well
    • Here & now is the best starting point
    • Success and well-being are the key outcomes
  • 4. Fundamental principles
    • Everything we do with the Planner requires professional judgement
    • The use of the Planner reveals as much about the users as it does about the subjects
    • There are several levels of response
    • While the Planner helps keep records, at its best, it is a communication device
