One of the SIMPLE principles
of SF says:
Inbetween - the action is in the interaction
and an other says:
Every case is different - beware ill-fitting theory
and in the "Agile Manifesto
" two of the four values are:
Responding to change over following a plan
Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Today a colleague of mine sent me a link to a talk of Barry Schwartz
which - for me - seems to provide some brilliant insights to this. This talk was hold on the TED2009 conference
Barry Schwartz studies the link between economics and psychology, offering startling insights into modern life. Lately, working with Ken Sharpe, he's studying wisdom. In this talk Barry Schwartz makes a passionate call for "practical wisdom" as an antidote to a society gone mad with bureaucracy. He argues powerfully that rules often fail us, incentives often backfire, and practical, everyday wisdom will help rebuild our world.
Of course: the term "Solution Focus" is not mentioned once in this talk.... but, anyway: What Schwartz says is IMHO a very useful platform for SF work in organisations.
