The theme of this paper is emergence of the twin concepts of 'Engagement' and 'Interpretive Inquiry' as major extensions of 'Comparison ' and 'Soft Systems Methodology' respectively. These concepts are outcomes from our current research program into the use of Systems Thinking in Management. The paper describes the context of the research, discusses the nature of 'Engagement' and presents its methodological form, which is called 'Interpretive Inquiry'.
