The client report takes as a premise the assertion that core executive systems like other features of human reality embody both continuity and change. Core executive systems are thus processes which contain their history and possible futures, and relations - that is as part of their essence are their ties with other relations. Thus a thorough and comprehensive consideration of core executive systems requires a consideration of what makes them different from other governance systems and what makes them identical; it requires a recognition that to a large degree how core executive systems appear and function are due to their surrounding conditions; it requires a recognition and anticipation that processes that initially take the form of quantitative change may at a certain point undergo qualitative transformation and become something else; and recognition that different elements within the core executive while remaining dependent upon one another can simultaneously undergo incompatible development.
The client report begins by examining various models, typographies and ideal types that have been used to investigate and explain the functionality, efficacy and configuration of the core executive.
