System Dynamics in the Evolution of the Systems Approach [chapter]

2009 Encyclopedia of Complexity and Systems Science  
The purpose of this chapter is to give an overview of the role of system dynamics (SD) in the context of the evolution of the systems movement. This is necessary because SD is often erroneously taken as the systems approach as such, not as part of it. It is also requisite to show that the processes of the evolution of both the systems movement as a whole and SD in particular are intimately linked and intertwined. Finally, in view of the purpose of the chapter, the actual and potential
