Abstract: Specialists in practice express the need to complete up with other special insights in order to attain the requisite holism. Systems thinking has always helped people fight oversight. This paper emphasizes, therefore, the need for the appropriate knowledge about the basics of both systems theory and the applied computer supported methods that can help individuals or groups in researching important complex decisionmaking problems, which we consider necessary (but not sufficient) conditions for innovations. We demonstrate that the modern Operations Research / Management Science (OR/MS) methods can help managers much more than the traditional ones. Learning how to apply an appropriate knowledge of OR/MS in practice can support problem solving capacity. In attempts to increase the extent to which company strategies and operating practices are oriented toward innovation we emphasize the capacity of dialectical systems thinking as a precondition for requisite holism, and therefore for successful and efficient creating and decision-making.
