TPM’s Mission
•
•
The Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management intends to
make a significant contribution to sustainable solutions to complex
social problems through internationally oriented education and
research.
TPM is doing so by analyzing the structure and operation of
technical multi-actor systems and by developing intervention
strategies, practices and instruments for designing and improving
systems of this kind.

Typical TPM-problems (2)
How can we prevent electricity liberalization
leading to widespread power failures?
Is there a relationship
between the liberalization
and power failures
elsewhere in the world?
What technological
solutions and institutional
arrangements are worth
recommending?

Typical TPM-problems (3)
How can air traffic at Schiphol expand within
publicly determined noise limits?
By measuring noise differently,
better sound insulation, steeper
takeoff and landing angles or
smarter air traffic control?

Typical TPM-problems (4)
How do we deal with water management in
the Netherlands?
A combination of higher
river dikes, sacrificing
polders as storage areas,
more drinking water
reservoirs and cooling
towers for our power
stations? By negotiating with
countries upstream, or
mainly through technical
innovations?

Typical TPM-problems (5)
How can we use our natural gas reserves
sustainably?
Removing and storing
carbon dioxide underground, mixing biogas or
hydrogen in the natural gas
network? Does our finegrained natural gas network
help us move to a hydrogen
economy more quickly, or is
the dialectics of progress at
work?

Typical TPM-problems (6)
How can we actualize spatial policy at different
levels of aggregation?
By writing memoranda and
formulating zoning plans? By
mobilizing sustainable stakeholders? By co-production of
policy? By public-private cooperation? Or by a more systematic and design-oriented
approach to the decisionmaking process?

Typical TPM-problems (7)
How can we ensure the continuity of telecommunication services?
Are technological innovations, such
as third generation mobile telecommunication, the solution?
Should we build a mobile
emergency network? Do we need
a more strict telecom regulator?
What is the role of government and
what can market players solve
themselves?

Typical TPM-problems (8)
How can organizations seize the strategic
opportunities of ICT?
What are the consequences
for organizations of offering
electronic services? What
technology is needed and
what organizational
adjustments have to be
made? And how can
business processes be
improved by telematics?

Typical TPM problems occur in
‘multi-actor systems’
Multi-actor systems:
• Require attention to the physical system
• Require attention to the behaviour of actors in the decisionmaking process
• Require attention to the underlying interaction:
the interference between actor behaviour and physical system
raises questions about steering and (process) management

The object of TPM (1)
Actor behaviour
• Actor behaviour renders the operation of multi-actor systems
complex and dynamic:
Actors (government authorities, businesses, organized interest groups,
consumers, citizens, etc.) use their strategies
The aggregate of strategies leads to an unpredictable decision-making
process and to unintended effects

The object of TPM (2)
The physical system
• The physical system is complex and dynamic:
It is not usually designed as one single system
Unpredictable behaviour by non-linearities, unforeseeable reactions,
indirect information about the status of components
Nevertheless society demands high quality performance

The TPM perspective
• System perspective
Analysis of structure and behaviour of physical systems
Focus on interactions between components
• Actor perspective
Analysis of structure and network of actors
Analysis of underlying relationships and interactions: the process of
decision making

Action perspective
TPM analyzes, designs and develops
tools, concepts, models, strategies, practices of action and
arrangements
which can be used for intervention in, and management and
innovation of multi-actor systems.
