    schema:description ""This book is about an innovative approach that lets members of progressive organizations function as applied scientists and problem solvers. This means that in such organizations work becomes more mindful. Decisions can be made based on inventories of information and analysis of datacouched tentatively, to be sure, subject to ratification through additional study. At the working level, planning and action can become linked, and the organization thereby becomes problemoriented rather than crisisreactive. It is ironic that this problemoriented approach has evolved most explicitly and selfconsciously in policing. We tend to think of police in terms of brawn rather than brains, and we may conceive of police officers as spending time wrestling with suspects and engaged in hot pursuits of fleeing felons. Police are perceived as the embodiment of blind reactivity, and yet an applied socialscientific focus on work has sprung up and taken root within the ranks of police. This book is addressed to those interested in the process of organizational change in settings in which a problemoriented focus may be relevant. I am interested, therefore, in making the process of problemoriented activity come alive and in conveying some sense of what such activity means to those who engage in its exercise"Introd.
