An Antagonistic Dialogue about Chaordic Systems Thinking: Part II
Wafler, Toni
Learning Organization, v11 n6 p458-465 2004
This paper is a continuation of the antagonistic dialogue about the differences of chaordic systems thinking (CST) and socio-technical systems design (STS). In this second part of the conversation a concrete example is used to illustrate the added value provided by CST. Whereas STS focuses on an organization's surface by designing processes and structures, CST aims at a developed mind and hence at the capability to reflect and understand. It is assumed that consciousness is the basis for the emergence of real organizational novelty, and thus, a prerequisite for viability. [For Part I, see EJ873226.]
