The concepts of Biomatrix Systems Theory combine into generic systems dynamics models (fig. 2-5) that differ from the conventional one (fig. 1).
conventional systems dynamics model (figure 1)
Most systems thinkers develop systems dynamics models by allowing members of the system to identify relevant variables and determine their impact on each other.
Without generic guiding frameworks and principles to assist them, this merely perpetuates currently entrenched thinking (exceptions are the generic patterns or archetypes described by Peter Senge which suggest some generic problems and their solutions).
biomatrix systems dynamics models (figures 2, 3 and 4)
By comparison, the concepts of Biomatrix Systems Theory combine into generic frameworks and principles for identifying the configuration of systems within the biomatrix and the flow of change through them.
The theory itself represents the generic systems dynamics of the biomatrix based on the following considerations:
Figure 2: Levels of entity systems in a containing systems hierarchy and their self-referring interlinking through the tapping of outward and inward directed activity systems.
Figure 3: The generic organisation of each entity and activity system (and their tapping) according to seven forces of system organisation and the clockwise and counterclockwise flow of change within and across levels.
Figure 4: The mutual interactions between entity systems at different levels, their tapping and their self-referral.
Figure 5: The multi-dimensionality of each activity system (including their tapping).
The generic systems dynamics of the biomatrix prompts the observation and management of change in a systematic instead of haphazard manner.
relevance for the change manager
The graphic depiction of the generic systems dynamics of the biomatrix facilitates the discussion of change and makes the identification of problems in the system easier to identify.
