Sample text

1). Systems thinking has been proposed as the “fifth discipline” precisely because, together with four other disciplines, it is presented as a means for building learning organizations, which are organizations that develop a continual collective learning by putting all their members in a position to learn together while supplying them with the instruments for such collective learning. Systems thinking is the fifth discipline. [. ] It is the discipline that integrates the [other four] disciplines, fusing them into a coherent body of theory and practice.

Along with dynamic systems there are structural systems and ordinal systems. Structural systems are operational systems made up of elements (usually processors) connected by a map of defined and stable relations forming the invariant organization of the system, according to Maturana and Varela’s interpretation (1980) so clearly described by Stafford Beer in the Preface to their work. The relations between components that define a composite unity (system) as a composite unity of a particular kind, constitute its organization.

Systems can be observed from an external point of view (forest) following a typical synthetic, teleological, or instrumental approach, according to which these systems, viewed as a whole, in many cases denote an object-oriented macro behavior, in that they serve a particular aim, or from an internal point of view (trees), following a structuralist, analytical approach, according to which it detects the macro behavior of the unitary system as the emergent effect of the micro behaviors. The rules of systems thinking and the simple examples presented clearly show that the fifth discipline has mainly an analytical, internal approach; the system derives from the interconnected action of the variables that form the structure.
