Syntegration/Team Syntegrity

This is a slightly random overview but drawing on some authoritative sources. The trademark stuff is because Stafford Beer sold his intellectual property to Fredmund Malik (or the Malik management centre or Malik consulting), which therefore owns some forms of trademarks for specific words like this, including the Malik VSM (R). It seems from a review of the material that some people respect this, some are licensed, some people run the same or similar processes using different names, and some just ignore it… however it’s clear the sale of intellectual property and knowledge base is completely legitimate.
