-SIG Chair: Louis Klein+SIG Chairs: Louis Klein and Gandolfo Dominici ​and
-Authors are welcomed to share their papers and wisdom on Systems Applications in Business and Industry. 
-==== Prior to the meeting: ​====+==== Systems Applications in Business and Industry ​====
-Authors may discuss their ideas about potential contributions with the SIG chairLouis Klein ( is a SIG for SABIand this year, three Exploratory Groups have been added to focus on specific aspects of SABI's work in systemic consulting and project management.
-Authors submit abstracts. Abstracts are posted ​on a web site for review by all. Preliminary discussions about clustering ideas into sessions are facilitated online through web forums/​conferences. ​ See the blog post on SABI sessions at Madison 2008.+SABI focuses ​on:
-Authors submit final papersPapers are clustered into session of three to five papersPreliminary discussions about ideas are facilitated online through web forums/​discussions.+1Models, 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 pictureInnovations ​are as well welcomed as revisions and  
 +   ​critical perspectives.
-==== At the conference: ====+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.
-In each session, each author is permitted up to five minutes to present the key ideas of their papersFor the remainder of the 90-to-120 minute session (of which each speaker is the focus for about 15 minutes)an open discussion on common themes ​and differences between ​the papers gradually reveals more details about each author'​s thinkingNon-authors ​are welcomed to ask clarifying questions ​and contribute additional ideas, later in the session.+3Explorationtrends ​and discourses 
 +   ​Finally SABI looks at explorations,​ trends and discourses beyond ​the individual business caseWhat  
 +   are the paradigmatic dynamics of observing ​and describing business and industry as such? 
-Authors who require more than five minutes to present their papers should not designate their papers for the SABI stream. The chairs of the streams on [[SIG on Organisational Transformation ​and Social Change]], [[SIG on Human Systems Inquiry]] and [[SIG on Evolutionary Development]] aim to work together to appropriate place papers, and work through scheduling challenges.+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:
-==== Presentation Format: ====+  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.  ​
-Authors will be asked to provide very brief (i.e. five minute) summaries of their key ideas or findings. The balance of the time is devoted to discussion between authors and participants about the topics. The use of Powerpoint is extremely discouraged, and LCD projectors will not be available. A flipchart or white board may or may not be available, for those who find that diagrams accelerate audience understanding.+==== Abstractspapers ​and presentations:​ ====
-==== After the conference: ====+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. ​
-In some years, digests ​of the meeting have been included in the conference retrospective (e.g. at Madison 2008). +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.

-The SIG on SABI has a history of posting its activities at annual meetings ​on the web. +
