An antagonistic dialogue about chaordic systems thinking: part I

An antagonistic dialogue about chaordic systems thinking: part I This paper explores the added value of chaordic systems Thinking for organizational renewal, which is defined as transformation instead of reformation. The exploration is presented in the form of an antagonistic dialogue between two “voices,” which develop commentaries from distinct theoretical inspirations, namely chaordic systems thinking (CST) and socio‐technical systems design (STS). This paper contains part I of the conversation. In the course of the dialogue it becomes obvious that CST both includes and transcends STS, and that it is firmly based in democratic values. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The Learning Organization Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This paper explores the added value of chaordic systems Thinking for organizational renewal, which is defined as transformation instead of reformation. The exploration is presented in the form of an antagonistic dialogue between two “voices,” which develop commentaries from distinct theoretical inspirations, namely chaordic systems thinking (CST) and socio‐technical systems design (STS). This paper contains part I of the conversation. In the course of the dialogue it becomes obvious that CST both includes and transcends STS, and that it is firmly based in democratic values.
