  2. 2. WHAT IS THE SYSTEM THEORY  The system theory is the transdisciplinary study of the abstract organization of phenomena, independent of their substance, type, or spatial or temporal scale of existence. It is also a management methodology as it is a way of analyzing and thinking about organizations and also an alternative approach
  3. 3. THE PREMISES OF THE SYSTEM THEORY The systems theory puts forth the premise that organizations, like living organisms, are made up of numerous component subsystems that must work together in harmony for the larger system to succeed. Systems theory states that organizational success relies on synergy, interrelations and interdependence between different subsystems. As arguably the most valuable component of a company, employees make up various vital subsystems within an organization. Departments, work groups, business units, facilities and individual employees can all be considered component systems of the organizations
  4. 4. CHARACTERISTICS/FEACTURES OF THE SYSTEMS THEORY  Communication Communication mechanisms must be put in place for organizational systems to exchange relevant information with its environment. Communication provides for the flow of information among the subsystems. Systems, subsystems and supersystem Systems are a set interrelated parte that turn inputs to outputs through processing. Subsystems is the step that does the processing of the objectives within an organization. Super systems are other systems in environment of which the survival of the focal system id dependent.
  5. 5. CHARACTERISTICS/FEACTURES OF THE SYSTEMS THEORY  Boundaries The part of the system that separates it from its environment. The four types of boundaries involved in the process are physical, linquistical, systematic and psychological boundaries. Goal-directedness systems are goal oriented and engage in feedback in order to meet the goals of the organisation. Also, every part of the system is interdependent with each other working together towards the
  6. 6. ADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEMS THEORY  It focuses on the environment and how changes can impact the organisation.  Broadens the theoretical aspects for viewing the behaviour of organizations.  It is designed to deal with complex tasks
  7. 7. DISADVANTAGES OF THE SYSTEMS THEORY  The systems theory doesn’t focus on specific task functions  Doesn’t provide for detailed focus.  The theory changes in environment directly affect the structure and function of the organisation  Doesn’t directly explore the impact of interpersonal relationships and loyalty on productively.
  8. 8. WAYS SYSTEM THEORY IS USED IN MORDERN ORGANISATION System theory is used to measure performance, control and compute the interactions among individuals in each department of the organisation. when the system theory is presented in an organisation this helps in growth and development. If a typical managerial leader has any knowledge of the system theory it is easier to manage the mechanisms of products and services leaving the organisation.
