Overview

"Stafford Beer is undoubtedly among the world's most provocative, creative, and profound thinkers on the subject of management, and he records his thinking with a flair that is unmatched. His writing is as much art as it is science.
He is the most viable system I know."
Dr Russell L Ackoff, The Institute for
Interactive Management, Pennsylvania.
USA.
This is a highly original book both in content and format. It presents thirteen 'arguments for change',
these are linked by a personal commentary, and by a deeper,
'metalinguistic', commentary. Platform for Change is completely self-contained, does not deal at all with the nature of viable systems, but is directed towards the hope that our planet may yet remain viable—and the human race survive.
