Abstract

The social, political, economic and ecological environment in which the organizations are immerse, has forced them to look for mechanisms that allow them to give agile and economic answers, in addition to show and generate flexibility and adaptation, that is to say, homeostasis. In other words, if the environment shows complexity, then the organization will respond in the same way. The Organizational Development (O.D.) and the Dynamics of Systems are tools of great importance for organizations. They allow them to adapt to the environment, to survive and to develop in it. While in the O.D. an appropriate intervention plan is created (of learning) in function of the wanted objectives of operation for the organization, the Dynamics of Systems combines the analysis and the synthesis and provides a language that allows: to express the relationships that take place in a complex system and to explain their behavior through time.
