The Viable Systems Model was an approach to industrial management developed by Stafford Beer.

Jon Walker wrote The Viable Systems Model a guide for co-operatives and federations

Its stated objectives are:

  • "to provide you with a set of tools which will enable you to deal with any problems concerning your organisational structure"
  • "to show you how to use these tools."

"It offers an alternative to the usual approach which depends upon hierarchy, authority and obedience, and is of particular interest to enterprises which are looking for ways of becoming more efficient and of encouraging participation and democratic work practices."
