Allenna Leonard, Stafford Beer's wife spoke at the Feb meeting of the
Creativity Consortium in Toronto, where she outlined Stafford's Viable
System's Model (VSM) and the cybernetic theory behind the VSM.

Stafford has written a number of books on the topic...The Heart of the
Firm, Designing Freedom etc.

I'll have her handouts available on our web site shortly.
