Title     Cybernetics and VSM
Speaker: Dr Angela Espinosa

On 14 January we listen to Dr Angela Espinosa when she will introduce Beer’s ‘Viable System Model’ (VSM): a theory of effective organisation inspired in cybernetic ideas on neural networks. She will explain how it supports organisations to manage complexity, and comment briefly on its recent developments and applications.
Dr Espinosa worked closely with S Beer and has continued developing the VSM to support governments, businesses, and communities in several countries in America, the United Kingdom and Europe. She is an Emeritus Fellow at the Centre for Systems Studies at the University of Hull, UK.
