This paper suggests a theoretical framework for interpretation of issues associated with safetymanagement of nuclear power plants (NPPs). A model is suggested that differentiatesbetween four focus areas tentatively labelled; (1) Strategic economy issue management; (2)Technology management; (3) Competence and Human Relations management (HRM), and(4) Quality system management. For each of these areas, called internal organisational focustopics, sets of matching external focus areas are identified. Management of NPPs are analysedas movement in a problem space in which the organisation seeks to optimise and trade offpartly conflicting values in search of integration and adaptation to external demands.
