How We Operate

scio's picture

SCiO is a group for systems practitioners and is based in the UK, but has members internationally.

It is focused primarily on systems practice and practitioners rather than on pure theory and on systems practice as applied to issues of organisation.

Why Systems?

scio's picture

"Systems" is about seeing things as wholes, not just as their parts. So the statement "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts" is the classic systems statement.

Traditional approaches tend to work by breaking complex wholes down into bits to make them easier to grasp.

 

Our Model

SCiO is committed to increasing knowledge of systems approaches and practical experience of applying them - particularly of the viable system model.
