IEHF Lecture: ‘Can we design effective sociotechnical systems? Exploring the gap between systems design and systems in action’ by Professor Ken Eason
“After 40 years of involvement in the design of sociotechnical systems I continue to find large gaps between systems as conceived by their designers and the way the systems operate in practice. In this lecture I want to explore why this gap still persists even where the design process is user- or human-centred and there is a lot of user involvement. For the past decade I have been working on systems in the service industries, mostly on health systems in the National Health Services.”
