Below, you'll find a number of documents about the OPMS
(And a PowerPoint presentation)
18-Jan-04: The OPMS software will also be available soon for download
along with information about how to become an OPMS Facilitator
The 'One Page Management System' OPMS is a uniquely powerful
aid to problem solving and decision making, developing out of John N. Warfield's
seminal contributions to systems design: the "structural science of system design" and
the methodologies to realise it, namely, 'Interactive Management'.
Linkages to more information about John Warfield's work are available
at John Warfield's site and at Martin Ryder's site
on "Cybernetics, Systems Theory and Complexity".
From my site, you can only download some documentation about the OPMS.
In due course, I shall add more utility to this site, I promise!
We are planning an interactive website, from which you could download
OPMS software, and also enter into interactive problem-
solving sessions using an Internet version of the OPMS software
Meanwhile, please make do with the documents I've uploaded here.
For more information, you can email me at: chandygs (at) hotmail dot com
I shall send you Word (.doc) files about the OPMS as a standard.
[If you don't like Word documents, I can send you Adobe (.pdf) files
if you specifically ask for them].
Want to try out the OPMS software rightaway, at its current level of 85% readiness?
Please write to me! [At: : chandygs (at) hotmail dot com]
Please go to YahooGroups and
register to become a member of YahooGroups.
Then open up the 'Behaviourome' project in YahooGroups, join up there.
You will find the 'OPMS software' at the 'Files Facility' there.
You will have to go to the 'Method 8' sub-folder!
There you will find various sub-folders, amongst which is "OPMS Software".
Write to me when you have successfully downloaded the exe file, and I shall
send you the installation code. I shall ask you to send me a 'confidentiality
agreement' which will include a clause stating that you will use the
software for yourself and not commercially at all without taking written permission
from me. It's a 30-day trial version - (30 'use-days', not 'working days').
I am really sorry to subject you to this complicated way of downloading
the software - but I request you to bear with me till I can get my own website going!
(I have very few skills in html - and you have no idea of how very difficult it was
for me to do this much!! However, I do assure you that, if you stick with it and
learn how to apply the OPMS approach to your real-life issues,
you would possess a skill of extraordinary value to you).
In one of the other sub-folders at Behaviourome, I've started on discussing a
live example of how to develop an OPMS for a chosen Mission. I shall be taking
some of the Behaviourome people through the process step-by-step, for a while at least.
(We shan't be creating a complete/comprehensive OPMS).
