Is Constraint something that should be addressed in I&A? Yes, constraints and limits are important aspects of daily life for organisations, enterprises, in economics, for production planning, etc.
However, the constraint is not there alone. Interweaves and Architects work in the world of humans where people use rich expressions to relate and describe their worlds. It has been shown that humans can relate badly to deficit approaches where the focus is on problems, what’s wrong, what needs to be fixed, or what’s missing. A shared focus on the positives sides, what might be, the opportunities, what you have, and freedoms, is equally (or more) important.
The positive sides, capabilities, and freedoms can be found emphasised in Appreciative Inquiry by David Cooperrider and Suresh Srivastva, the Capability Approach by Nobel laureate Amartya Sen, and the Heart-Mind inquiry by Dalai Lama Centre.
Does interweaving & architecting deliver only constraints? No, A delivery is than constraints.
I&A often involves inquiring, interpreting, evaluating the world through architectural lenses, for the purpose of generating knowledge. This knowledge can be in the form of descriptions, explanations of the past, hypothesis, or predictions.
