The proceedings for the IFSR Conversation 2006 were subsequently published in 2007.

Infrastructure of the Systems Movement

The triggering question was: 'Systems and technology (e.g. what technologies should we be incorporating into Systems work, and how should we be affecting the development of technologies?)].

The Status and Evolution of Systems Organizations

In the first half day, the group coalesced on five triggering questions:

  • 1. What identity/does should the {IFSR, systems organizations} have in the world and in the network of systems organizations?
  • 2. What can the {IFSR, systems organizations} do to encourage and make affordable for {students, new members, fresh blood} to join, participate in, and continue with the systems movement?
  • 3. Where can the {IFSR, systems organizations} get {material, energy, and information} to maintain themselves and the network as viable systems?
  • 4. How does/should the {IFSR, systems organizations} respond to (anticipated) changes in the environment (e.g. globalization, Internet, ethics of inter-relationships at organizational and individual/personal levels)?
  • 5. How does/should the {IFSR, systems organizations} reach out and reflect itself to the world (with emergence), and how we can plan and measure this?
