Example text

Variety operates at all times whether we recognize it or not. 64 For this we need to know how complex systems work and how they can be controlled. Cybernetics as the science of the control of complex systems can help us with this. The current classical reductionist approaches that still cling to the concept of control in the sense of controlling every detail and specific do not only not offer any help but actually make things worse. Beer’s Viable System Model provides the possibility of diagnosing and structuring a system properly so that we are in control of it in the cybernetic sense.

The elaboration of the model is rather complex and detailed. I shall refrain from repeating it here, as a basic understanding of the 36 Ahead of Change model is enough for our purpose. Moreover, I am convinced that the fundamental thought is not that difficult to grasp and that the reader will understand the importance of the model even without in-depth ­examinations of the individual subsystems and their interconnections. 39 It is the Elemental Operational Unit (EOU) of the system and as such »does« what the system is actually supposed to do.

There are also certain principles underlying it, with which we shall be dealing later. The elaboration of the model is rather complex and detailed. I shall refrain from repeating it here, as a basic understanding of the 36 Ahead of Change model is enough for our purpose. Moreover, I am convinced that the fundamental thought is not that difficult to grasp and that the reader will understand the importance of the model even without in-depth ­examinations of the individual subsystems and their interconnections.
