Organisationen reagieren – anders als es die klassische Marktforschung suggeriert – nicht auf objektiv gegebene Umweltbedingungen, sondern sie erfinden, erschaffen und konstruieren sich ihre Wirklichkeit selbst. Denn aus den verwirrenden, chaotischen und irritierenden Eindrücken ziehen Organisationen jene Informationen, mit denen sie sich ein Bild von ihrem Umfeld machen können, das es ihnen erlaubt, sich einigermaßen sicher in dieser Umwelt bewegen zu können. Bei der Exploration der Umwelt – oder enger: der Exploration der Märkte – geht es darum, diesen Konstruktionsprozess über Prozesse des „Re-Framing“, der „Degeneralisierung“ und der „Hypothesenbildung“ so zu beeinflussen, dass Organisationen Ungewohntes sehen können.

Bei Projekten, die sich mit schlecht definierten Problemen beschäftigen, führen die Prinzipien des klassischen Projektmanagements nicht weiter: Projektmanager versuchen vergeblich, eine lineare Vorgehensweise aufrechtzuerhalten, auch wenn Zielkorridore, Betroffene und Rahmenbedingungen nicht genau zu bestimmen sind. Basierend auf aktuellen organisationstheoretischen Überlegungen wird eine grundlegend andere Betrachtungs- und Herangehensweise vorgeschlagen: Erprobungen zu beginnen, bevor überhaupt zu Ende gedacht wurde. Die overview von Projekten setzt nicht an Ziel-Ist-Vergleichen an, sondern daran, ob es gelungen ist, Stagnation zu überwinden, Konflikte auszuräumen und Verständigung über neue Handlungsmöglichkeiten herbeizuführen.
