How We Operate

scio's picture

SCiO is a community of systems practitioners who believe that traditional approaches to running organisations are responsible for many of the problems we see today. We believe that systemic approaches to designing and running organisations offer radically new and better alternatives.

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's picture

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

Try out the Organisational Maturity Model to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your organisation.
