  • Presents a combination of social autopoiesis and process thinking
  • Shows how processual autopoietic systems can be built and which benefits they can accrue
  • Brings a new perspective to organizational knowledge production ​

The systemic view provides a basic approach through which people may advance their understanding of knowledge production in organizations. One of the most important contributions to this systemic view is the theory of social autopoiesis which emphasizes that knowledge production of organizations can only be understood through the view of a social autopoietic system. Recent developments in the field of organization research have started to view organization as a process rather than as entity. The author combines in this book these two approaches – autopoietic systemic view and process thinking - in a way that organizations are seen as processual autopoietic systems.​
