Attempts to explain the sources of the basic assumption of the socio-economic approach to management (SEAM): the existence of hidden costs and performance. These are due to the heterogeneity of situations and to the Presence of multiple contradictions in these situations. Aims to show how SEAM can help to both spot these two dimensions and to shed light on the operational difficulties for managers to cope with them.
