Organizational Cybernetics and Human Values.
Ericson, Richard F.
Prepared for the International Congress of Cybernetics, Imperial College, University of London, September 4, 1969, this paper is concerned with man in organizations. The major hypothesis explored is that managers of large enterprises--public or private, in any context--have an increasingly urgent socio-humanistic responsibility to create self-actualizing organizations which will assure to the maximum extent possible the transcendence of human over technological values. The major thesis is that general systems insights, information theory and the associated cybernetic science, and computer technology can be made to provide the basis of this requirement of contemporary managers.
