General Systems Theory Approaches to Organizations: Some Problems in Application
Peery, Newman S., Jr.
Journal of Management Studies, 12, 3, 266-275, Oct 75
Considers the limitations of General Systems Theory (GST) as a major paradigm within administrative theory and concludes that most systems formulations overemphasize growth and show little appreciation for intraorganizational conflict, diversity of values, and political action within organizations. Suggests that these limitations are mainly due to the users of GST. (Author/JG)
