Stafford Beer

Stafford Beer's website (official or not) http://www.staffordbeer.com/
subjects Stafford Beer writes about Organization, Information Systems, Operations Research
Stafford Beer's profile World leader in the development of operational research, who combined management systems with cybernetics.

A charismatic, even flamboyant, character, Beer founded two major pioneering OR groups; wrote some of the best books about it; and was a world leader in the development of systems ideas. He is widely acknowledged as the founder of management cybernetics, which he defined as "the science of effective organisation".

His thinking on how decisions about complex social systems could best be made went through several phases. As an operational researcher he pioneered the idea of interdisciplinary teams to tackle problems in business, government and society. As a systems guru, he was concerned with designing appropriate feedback loops within social systems. More recently, he worked on participative methods to enable large groups to solve their own problems. What united these aspects of his work was his early and consistent commitment to a holistic approach.
