What is the meaning of Call for action?
A call for action is intended to result
in some form of management or control. Cognitive maps, concept
maps, cause maps and diagrammatic representations of strategy are normally
and deliberately coded with an active verb so that each
of the ideas, notions, personal constructs or concepts contained in
them constitutes a call for action. This is
both an aid to minimising ambiguity and to guide the
process of ‘manage and control’ which is meant to flow
through pairs of linked concepts. A call for action at the tail (source) of a causal link is
intended to result in some form of management or control
action at the head (sink) of that link (Eden and
Ackermann, 1998a: 94; 160; 290).
