Stafford Beer's Viable Systems Model (VSM) is an exceptionally insightful organizational analysis tool that is conspicuous by its absence ana from the mainstream strategic planning literature. The authors argue that this is largely due to the theoretically daunting manner in which the model has been presented, and the lack of practical, easy to follow, case studies focused on business organizations. This paper seeks to rectify this, and encourage a wider dissemination of the approach, by providing an introduction to the model and reporting on a consulting assignment with a telecommunications company during a period of extensive organizational change.
