Abstract

Nowadays, society is facing challenges for which the traditional management toolbox is increasingly inadequate. Well-grounded theoretical frameworks, such as systems thinking and cybernetics, offer general level interpretation schemes and models that are capable to support understanding of complex phenomena and suffer less from the passing of time. This book is the outcome of the WOSC 2017, the 17th edition of the Congress of the World Organization of Systems and Cybernetics, a world organization that invites scientists, policy-makers, professionals, and students across the globe to contribute to the debate of the dynamics underpinning contemporary societal problems from cybersystemic perspectives. WOSC offers a space for conversations about social dynamics from multiple points of view. A multi-disciplinary approach has been adopted to develop inter- and trans-disciplinary knowledge within the shared thematic of problem solving and decision making in the 21st Century. Its realisation is supported by a wide network of scientists in a highly participative agenda. The book provides a platform of knowledge and conceptual frameworks developed with multi-disciplinary perspectives, which are useful to better understand our fast-changing scenarios and the complexity of problem solving in the 21st Century.
