There are multiple documents for this database record. To view the multiple documents, please open this FOLDER in the path " C:\Users\Rose\Documents\John Warfield Papers\INVNRW\JwPapers\Writings in Progress\WPOC (Work Program of Complexity)” and select the readme file for more info. Three documents found by Rose when unpacking and now grouped together in a computer folder. The papers were in a manila folder labeled WPOC, along with an “Instruction for Authors” printout from Journal of the International Network of Engineering Studies. GMU DOES NOT HAVE HARD COPY, BUT DOES HAVE DIGITIZED DOCUMENTS as part of Warfield’s “DVD 2 of 2" sent to Special Collections in 2008. There isn’t much here, just a few pages, but the two Tables are pretty good groundwork. Titles of the 3 documents in boldface, followed by filenames in italics can be seen better in the README file on Rose's computer which is same as here:
● Table 1. Summary Comparison of Interactive Management and the Work Program of Complexity. Work Program Table One.pdf - 1 page. In side by side columns, the two methods Interactive Management and WPOC are compared, demonstrating their similarities and differences.
● Proposition Outline of February 3, 2004 Presentation: The Work Program of Complexity. WorkProgramofCompl.wpd -3 pages. A bulleted manuscript or talk outline for John’s PowerPoint presentation in Tampa, Florida at the INCOSE workgroup Feb 2, 2003.
● Table 3. Products from application of the WPOC. WPOCProducts.wpd - 2 pages. Describes in tabular form 14 tangible an 5 intangible results a corporation could expect from using Warfield’s Work Program of Complexity when trying to manage a difficult situation, the defining of the set of problems, a true measurement of the complexity of the task under study, the options available to the group, a visual graphic displaying all in large wall chart, and program designs for action to solve the problems, etc.
It is apparently Warfield’s holding folder for collecting materials for paper he planned to write to discuss the next stage beyond Interactive Management, a stage of management which he had termed Work Program of Complexity. He planned to submit it to the new journal just started in 2008, the year in which he made these printouts and saved them in this manila folder. This is one of several half started ideas for new papers which he hoped to write during retirement but hadn’t had time to do so as yet. The term “Work Program of Complexity” has been used so much in past writings that this title is hard to identify and keep from confusing with other documents of the same title. I solved it by calling this little bunch of papers an Unfinished Manuscript, suitable for folder named WRITINGS IN PROGRESS.
