This paper illustrates how self-interaction and cross interaction matrices can be used to portray interactions among several sets that can be important in program planning. It is a precursor to the development of interpretive structural modeling, in that the unwieldiness of the matrices, the need for directionality in relations, the need for computer assistance in keeping track of the information, and the need for a more easily read graphical portrayal all became apparent in working with the various planning matrices.
