Social dialogue

SOCIAL DIALOGUE

  • A system is a 'whole' that cannot be divided into independent parts, because the behaviour of the parts and their effect on the whole, depends on the behaviour of all the parts interacting with each other (Gharajedaghi & Ackoff, 1985).

  • The essential properties of a system are therefore lost when it is taken apart.

  • I am what I am through the qualities and contributions of people around me. “Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu
