Applied General Systems Research on Organizations

Benefits

  • All the chapters of the book throw light on systemic properties relevant to organizations in terms of a common framework. The framework, known as the organizational cybernetic model, is one of the basic models in mathematical systems theory as well as in systems practice. The model explicitly formulates not only hierarchical and decentralized decision making function but also coordination mechanisms within and among organizations

  • Develops a comprehensive model of organizations by enriching the organizational cybernetic model with such approaches as agent-based modeling and evolutionary economics. In this sense, the book provides us with computational models

About this book

Introduction

Drastic changes of the societies in the new century require new paradigm in every area of social science. Organizations study is not exception. This book illustrates the cutting edge of organizations study beyond the traditional approaches in management science and general management theory. With an interdisciplinary approach emphasizing systemic properties of organizations such as interaction, hierarchy, network and emergence, it covers dynamic aspects of organizational learning and evolution as well as the decision making function and information processing process.
