Metasystem communication in governance of complex systems
by Charles W. Chesterman Jr.; David C. Walters; Kevin MacGregor Adams
International Journal of System of Systems Engineering (IJSSE), Vol. 6, No. 1/2, 2015

Abstract: Governance of complex systems to achieve goals, even while experiencing change, is accomplished by metasystem functions through a set of communication channels. This paper will explore the structure of these communication channels, the content of what is communicated and the activities of the metasystem functions with respect to these communication channels. Additionally, there will be an identification of associated implications in governance of complex systems when there is the absence of specific communication channels. Finally, there will be recommendations for future research.
