The book is dedicated to celebrate the work of Markus Schwaninger, a leader in the growning community of systems thinkers and systems modelers. The main aim of the book is to cover the integrating theory with practical applications of Systemic Models.

The book contribute to our understanding of intelligent organisations as the outcome of self-referential, self-organising and self-regulatory processes. And this are words and concepts that will be used and explained through this magnificent book. I really recommend you have one copy of this excellent work.

The book help us to developing and applying cybernetic and systemic thinking to transformative processes in the private, public and third sectors . This book is unique and the best on this theme and it is a necessary reading for anyone interested in these topics and besides that the book is very well written and very well presented and organized.


  • The book contains case studies and examples about the latest applications of systems approaches in the field of management
  • The book covers three major areas of model-based management: systemic management, organizational cybernetics, and system dynamics
  • Insightful combination of theoretical and practical themes about systems-oriented management
​The last two decades increasingly have challenged the field of management by confronting it with rapidly growing levels of dynamism, inter-connectedness, and complexity. Systems-based management approaches, their promise already proven, offer great potentials for influencing and coping with this development. This collection of essays offers ideas and exemplary case studies from experts in systemic management, organiza-tional cybernetics, and system dynamics for meeting the challenges in so-cio-economic systems. This book was compiled to honor the academic achievement of Markus Schwaninger, a leading protagonist in developing the field of systemic management and organizational cybernetics. His stature in the field is demonstrated in the forewords by Raul Espejo and John Sterman. The efforts of 18 researchers and practitioners, all closely related to Markus Schwaninger, offer conceptual and empirical approaches that will allow managers and advanced students of the management profession to analyze, understand, and design intelligent organizations.  The book weaves its content from both theory and practice and offers hints for improving a variety of organizations, both private and public, profit and non-profit, and large and small.​
