Operating Model

•Even though Vuyo’s interventions are tailor made and take into account the unique circumstances of each person or organisation, they (interventions) are underpinned in her “systems” way of thinking and operating. Systems theory is an interdisciplinary theory about the nature of complex systems in nature, society, and science, and is a framework by which one can investigate and/or describe any group of objects that work together to produce some result. This could be a single organism, any organization or society, or any electro-mechanical or informational artefact.

•Systems thinking is a holistic approach to analysis that focuses on the way that a system's constituent parts interrelate and how systems work over time and within the context of larger systems. People who adhere to systems thinking, or the systemic perspective, believe that in order to fully understand the entire phenomenon, it is necessary to take a global perspective, rather than only breaking it up into its basic components. 

Development of systems theory

•Systems theory finds some of its roots within the biological sciences, as some of the founders of its core concepts, including Ludwig Bertalanffy and Humberto Maturana, were biologists.
•One of the main perspectives of systems theory is viewing an individual or group as its own ecosystem with many moving parts that affect each other.
•Principles of systems theory have been applied to the field of psychology to explore and explain behavioral patterns.
•This approach was spearheaded by several individuals, including Gregory Bateson, Murray Bowen, Anatol Rapoport, W. Ross Ashby, and Margaret Mead.
