The environment as a multi-dimensional system: (2012)
  • Murray Hunter

Traditional approaches to management have been mechanistic, grounded in the belief that one is in control within an environment that can be manipulated through a firm forming objectives, strategies, and actions through organizations. In addition strategic planning has viewed the environment in a very structured way, for example a situational audit and SWOT analysis2 and it wasn’t until Porter developed the competitive forces model that the environment became the centre of strategy. These kinetic metaphors portray an organization as one embedded with a belief that it has an internal locus of control with the ability to manipulate forces within the environment.
