Espejo R. & Reyes A. (2011) Organizational systems: Managing complexity with the viable system model. Springer Verlag, Heidelberg.
This book clarifies the application of cybernetic ideas to organizational diagnosis and design. It uses Stafford Beer’s Viable System Model and Maturana and Varela’s autopoietic epistemology. Readers learn to appreciate the relevance of seeing the systemic coherence of the world as constructed by people’s interactions. Organizational systems emerge from the closure of these interactions and as such are autonomous, structurally determined, and have their own cognitive capabilities. The book offers methodological support and also methods to make use of these ideas.
