* SCOS : Systemics for Complex Organisational Systems

Highly versatile and adaptable,

  • it applies to a wide range of problems, projects and systems of all sizes and its focus can be adjusted;
  • it takes into account value fields of various natures:
    • economic and financial,
    • material or immaterial : social, environmental, …
    • discrete or continuous.

Flexible,

  • it can deal with estimates;
  • it puts up with uncertainties and pins down feasability conditions;
  • it highlights pathways to be explored / examined further / dropped;
  • thus it serves as:
    • driver for innovation,
    • and a valuable decision-helping tool under uncertain conditions.

Collaborative and conveyable,

  • it is « portable » as it helps to federate various fields of expertise and/or to focus on some specific areas;
  • it allows you to learn as you go through short feedback loops.

Iterative,

  • it can be transposed at various organisation levels depending on the project’s course;
  • or put on hold then resumed depending on results achieved and decisons made.

Rigourous and stringent,

  • it requires to focus on value and functions, rather than costs and means.

Fluid,

  • it is easy to implement and delivers its first results over a short period of time, then it can be adjusted by trials and errors.

It works as a genuinely integrated information and knowledge management tool.
