Systemic Business Community
Here's a map of the web sites accessible on the menu bar.
We're regular contributors to ISSS meetings. Sometimes we start papers there, and then develop them further for publication. Some content is rambling, and some has been professionally edited.
Publications are listed in two different ways:
Digests are not the official transcripts of a meeting or an event, but instead one participant's account. David Ing is renowned for taking rather complete notes of meetings in progress, and most recently, for recording digital audio. (Some sessions are available in MP3 format, if you want to a copy, send a request!)
The web presents an interesting opportunity and caution to researchers. On the one hand, the nearly-instant digital reproduction of documents permits wide access into a broad range of ideas. On the other hand, the potential for misunderstanding through misquoting possibly even just mistyping is great. Documents on the web reinforce a standard of caveat lector -- let the reader beware!
This web site includes digests of three types.
The About page lists some members of the Systemic Business Community. As a natural course in a community, some are more involved at some times than others, and new members come to share interests.
The blog and web pages are maintained on a voluntary basis. This is intended as a not-for-profit learning opportunity, where education and research is shared peer-to-peer. We get as much as we give. (The founders were happily otherwise employed, and apply the learnings in their everyday practice.)
If you're interested in this content, the best way to plug into the community is to get involved with the Special Integration Group on Systems Applications in Business and Industry at one of the annual meetings of the ISSS.
