Our President Martin Smith writes:"The Metaphorum Group is a community of researchers and practitioners interested in the preservation, promotion and development of Stafford Beer's Legacy in Management Cybernetics - the field founded by him. Stafford Beer pioneered the application of cybernetics to the understanding of all complex dynamic systems. After years in industry pioneering Operational Research he wrote a number of books including: "Management and Cybernetics", "Decision and Control" and "Brain of the Firm". He was invited by the Prime Minister of Chile, Dr Salvadore Allende, to apply this approach to Government in Chile. Beer's theories have been developed and they are believed to be increasingly relevant to governments and the governance of organisations of all kinds wishing to develop resilience and the capability to adapt to the challenges of social, environmental and economic changes."
