The Management Initiative study, as a part of the introduction, also helps underline that the theory in this book initially derived from practice and, it is hoped, will not throughout deviate far from practical use. The next chapter takes up the problem of unravelling style but now sets it into the context of problem solving in general. It consists of an exploration, in personal management terms, of how the individual problem solves and where style plays its part among the many other elements. This next chapter completes the general foundations of this work; after that the chapters generally move from personal problem solving to solving problems in groups and so collective management of diversity within oneself, of the problems to be solved and of other involved problem solvers.

Introduction 13 was at the time when more than one main line product suffered from falling sales and some radically new one seemed to be needed at once. This old, radical (an interesting combination of adjectives) product was remembered and at this point the idea broke through. The fate of other products had changed the climate and acted as the conditions for a precipitating event. Two lessons learnt here are that not only can agreement for change sometimes take a very long time, but it may still require unusual conditions (memorable precipitating events2) to get it, even among groups that pride themselves on their willingness to change.

Means are also required to meet all other basic needs and drives, such as acquiring nutriment (personal need) and reproduction (species need). Such ‘problemsolving’ means are possessed even by such primitive single-cell organisms as prokaryotes and eukaryotes. All organisms, mankind included, need these basic survival elements. Even very primitive organisms have problem-solving resources, however basic, which must include the detection of unfavourable conditions and some means of avoiding their full effects – all these means being ‘wired-in’ to their basic structure.
