When flummoxed and interested in equal measure I buy the book.
An article won’t do. I need to understand the person’s argument more fully. Written some 10 years on from the article we are looking at in H800 ‘From Teams and Knots’ may benefit from Engestrom having had 10 years teaching at a US university.
Can I read it in 24 hours though? (and take notes)
Reading the sample chapter on my Kindle I am immediately taken by the author’s interest in teams in industry, in particular in car manufacture and the work of Jones et al in Lean Production in the 1990s. For four or more years I was spending three weeks out of every four videoing the development of lean production at UGC. An author who made no sense on first reading, I suddenly find has a great deal to say about something with which I am familiar.
