Peter Kruse

Peter Kruse, the system theoretician, who sadly died much too soon, has contributed significantly in Germany to the fact that thinking and acting in non-linear causal connections is also known about and respected within organisations. His research about the conditions under which a process pattern change can occur, have contributed much to the understanding as to why social systems are so self-stabilising and often show themselves to be unimpressed by efforts to change. His attempts to increase the IT-supported communication of network density in organisations, and with it, to arrive at other decision-making forms and possibilities, are inspiring. With his contextual and reflective thinking, he is, again and again, a role model for our metatheoretical considerations.
