Integral transformation of organizational systems

Ignacio E. Peon

Abstract


In the chaotic environment of economic globalization, a very common situation is the collapse of organizational systems (of different types), in particular in small and fragile organizations. There are few systemic studies on the collapsing process of organizations, caused by internal and external conditions. The collapse of organizations calls for a radical transformation process. Sometimes, it may be possible a resurgence of the organization under a more complex form, with emergent properties. It is a life-death-resurgence process.

This article, is a reflection on the life cycle of organizations and beyond each life cycle, as a radical evolutionary process towards a higher degree of complexity and consciousness, or complexification, and conscientization in social organizations under turbulent and uncertain conditions.

Keywords


evolutionary process, complexification-conscientization, life cycle, radical transformation, emergent properties, collapse, mutation.
