ViPlan Learning System
Viplan Learning System is a learning environment created using the authoring software ToolBook that explains both Stafford Beer's Viable System Model and Raul Espejo's Viplan Method. It was developed in the 90s and today it has been superseeded by the book Organizational Systems: Managing Complexity with the Viable System Model (see piblications). However, in spite of its old-fashioned platform, it is currently available in English and Spanish for those using old windows operating systems.
The Viplan Method has underpinned Syncho's use of the Viable System Model (VSM) over a number of years. This method offers an approach to diagnose and design an organisation's structure based on its vision, mission and strategy. It takes into account the varied viewpoints of the people involved in organizations and uses the Viable System Model to make structural issues apparent.
Those of you who, after reading Organizational Systems, want to further develop your understanding of the VSM and Viplan are invited to join the Online Learning Centre.
