Systems Applications in Business and Industry

There is a SIG for SABI, and this year, three Exploratory Groups have been added to focus on specific aspects of SABI's work in systemic consulting and project management.

SABI focuses on:

1. Models, methods and instruments

 The SABI classic looks at models, methods and instruments to observe and describe business and 
 industry in a niche as well as the big picture. Innovations are as well welcomed as revisions and 
 critical perspectives.

2. Reflection-in-Action

 Systemic reflections of concrete examples and cases look at sense making and problem solving beyond 
 models, methods and instruments. The focus is not only on the what it is on the how and who as well 
 deepening the understanding and contributing towards a body of knowledge of reflective practices in 
 business and industry.

3. Exploration, trends and discourses

 Finally SABI looks at explorations, trends and discourses beyond the individual business case. What 
 are the paradigmatic dynamics of observing and describing business and industry as such? 

In this year's conference SABI will also host three exploratory groups, which start in the business and industry arena but may also reach far beyond the economic mainland:

 Systemic Project Management

 Together with the International Project Management Association (IPMA) and the International Center 
 for Complex Project Management (ICCPM) the exploratory group will look at systemic solutions for 
 challenges in project management.

 Systemic Consulting

 Working closely with the Globally Responsible Advisory and Consulting group of the Globally 
 Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) the exploratory group will look at systemic consulting 
 practices and the conditions for the possibility to change consulting towards global responsibility.

 Sustainable Business and Marketing Management - with co-chair Gandolfo Dominici

 Together with the Business Systems Laboratory (BSLab) the exploratory group will look at systemic solutions for challenges in implementing Sustainable Business and Marketing Management practices.  

Abstracts, papers and presentations:

In the SABI SIG, papers are accepted for presentation based on the submitted abstracts. In each session, each author is permitted up to ten minutes to present the key ideas of their papers. Graphics, visualisation and animations are preferred to text only slides. Very brief discussions of the single papers are encouraged. For the larger part of the session the speakers engage in an open panel discussion among their group and with the audience. The emphasis is on fostering reflection and discourse.

Formats for certain sessions of SABI SIG and the two exploratory groups may differ depending on the proposed content within these sessions and will developed in consultation with those submitting work to these sessions.
