With my reflection and explanation here, I would clearly point out that work is not simply managed at all. Hopefully, with this writing I can elaborate myself clearly with various examples and my understandings. Work through Systems – Science on Trial, Error and the God Complex Being an engineering student, this concept is more likely to be understandable. It is very common to see we believe in “God complex” raised by Tim Harford through the investigation and studies with the existing journal and research papers. Sciences’ discoveries come from trial and errors. With numerous tests and experiments done towards a specific hypothesis, scientists then drew the conclusion the evidences and test results. And yet, it is expectable that may not be the best solution towards the problem. However, plenty of the researchers failed to extend and further elaborate on the topic they investigate. I believe if there are not facing the issue of God Complex, there will...
