A Systems Approach to Management Studies

Project summary

This project will use ideas from Systems Biology to develop a Systems Communications Model of management and will study Systems Businesses that use this model, with case studies of global companies located in South Korea.  The project will also survey members of the Davos Forum and the Asia Economy Community Forum, and the output will include a book on guidelines for management practice.
