Keynote Practice: Dr. Olaf Brugman - '3136 Sustainable Development in Business Networks - The Ecology of Dialogue and Narratives in Management'
Sustainable Development in Business Networks - The Ecology of Dialogue and Narratives in Management (PLENARY)

The presentation shows how dialogue and narratives are drivers for sustainable business development in and by organisational networks. Sustainable development and inclusive business are required for business to maintain its social license to operate, both in a physical and in a social sense. Developing business in a sustainable way regards challenges and solutions that go beyond the sphere of control of individual businesses.

Effective stakeholder dialogue development builds narratives that influence and enable actors. They are essential both as a business intelligence tools to develop the business in its identity, strategy and operations, and also to design and realise physical, economic and social environments in which business can thrive in a legitimate and inclusive way.This is demonstrated by practical examples in the areas of green finance, sustainable agriculture and in a policy dialogue between government, business and civil society on good land governance in the Netherlands.

System dynamics models on learning, development, intercommunity relationship dynamics, ecology, mind (Gregory and Marie Catherine Bateson) and management cybernetics (Stafford Beer, Raul Espejo, Fredmund Malik, Markus Schwaninger) are used to discuss the role of dialogue and narratives in non-hierarchical organisational networks. Also, a case study on sustainable soy supply chains will be presented on how management cybernetics’ concepts and tools were used to stimulate dialogue and to use its fruits to design better sustainable business systems, using Malik Super Syntegration technology.The presentation draws conclusions on what system science can contribute to designing effective dialogues for collaborative change in organisational networks. And it suggests how experiences from business practice may inspire further dialogue and narrative-centered development of viable systems science and management cybernetics.

Keynote Practice: Prof. Dr. Fredmund Malik - ' 3246 Meta-systems as master controls of management, leadership and governance'
My approach to management differs fundamentally from conventional thinking which is mainly oriented on business and making profit. In contrast, I understand right and good management as the function of society that enables its organizations and systems to function reliably according to their purpose – in all kinds of organizations. Management decisions and pro- cesses create purpose, orientation and structure in order to achieve results. In doing so, management also fulfills societal and political responsibility, and also basic ethical values. The master controls in this sense are meta-systems and meta-models.

Today, management means mastering complexity on the basis of the complexity sciences, i.e. systems theory, cybernetics and bionics. It makes use of complexity itself, of self-regulation and self-organization, and of evolutionary processes for organizational learning, adaptability, change and transformation. Therefore our innovations in management offer fundamentally new solutions for shaping and leading organizations, for transformational change and its effective implementation.

Management systems are the evolutionary operating system for organizations.

What operating systems are to computers by analogy, management is to organizations. We can see it as the societal and evolutionary operating system for organizations of all kinds and sizes. There is thus a functional continuum from the DNA in the biological cell, to computer operating systems, to the human central nervous system and to management systems for organizations. In order to work, meta-systems and models are needed to guide perception, thinking and acting in organizations.

Keynote Practice: Mag. Dominic Weiss - '3137 Smart City Wien – a systemic solution in a systemic world'
Smart City Wien is a long-term initiative by the city of Vienna that looks at a cross-section of the city, covering all areas of life, work and leisure activities in equal measure, and includes everything from infrastructure, energy and mobility to all aspects of urban development.

Smart City Wien defines the development of a city that assigns priority to, and interlinks, the issues of energy, mobility, buildings and infrastructure. In this, the following premises apply: radical resource preservation, development and productive use of innovations/new technologies and high and socially balanced quality of life

Vienna’s Smart City strategy is characterised by both an internal effect to render existing plans even more ambitious and to inspire new ideas. At the same time, its external effect is to create an international frame of reference for what is happening here and to generate publicity for Vienna’s aims.

The time horizon of the framework strategy extends to 2050, since the necessary and often fundamental changes in the fields of energy, mobility or construction cannot happen overnight. The thematic arc stretches from the future of Vienna as a hub of research and business to the preservation of all-important social achievements. Concrete methods of application must still be developed in many areas – but the direction is clear: Vienna wants to pursue an integrated goal for its Smart City where everyone can benefit from synergy effects and continually team play.

It is the key goal of Smart City Wien for 2050 to offer optimum quality of life for all citizens - combined with the highest possible resource preservation. This can be achieved through a holistic approach, which is the beating heart of our city and also the reason, why the Smart City Wien is an important systemic solution in a systemic world where everything is connected.
