[Quantum Gardener]: This very interesting paper
[196k PDF] applies the concepts of Linguistic Action to the problem of Project
Management. It is a great example of the practical use the basic
linguistic acts can be put to.
From the paper: Lean Construction,
inspired by the Toyota Production System, has applied principles
drawn from production management to the design of project-based
production systems. The theory of linguistic action describes the
very human processes, the purposeful ways people communicate, by
which projects are conceived and delivered.
