The Basis for the Viable System Model / Stafford Beer // Javier Livas
Stafford Beer explains the basic thinking behind the creation of the Viable System Model. The stuff of management is complexity and variety is the scientific name used to quantify complexity. Amplifiers and filters allow managers to exercise control over the process and then over the environment. Beer evokes Hegel’s thinking and the cybernetic paradigm which were mentioned in the first part of the conference also on YOUTUBE.
