Viable System Model (VSM)

The Viable System Model was created by Stafford Beer over twenty years ago, it has been used extensively as a conceptual tool for understanding organisations, redesigning them (where appropriate) and supporting the management of change.

Dr Barry Johnson of Polarity Partnerships talks about interdependent pairs as polarities and developed the Polarity Map to help visualise both-and thinking. This helps to provide a framework for examining the challenges that interdependencies raise and resolving their dynamics.
