About this book


In his book Kai Bulling proposes the systems constellation as an instrument for change agents. An innovative general model of the systems constellation as a management intervention is constructed that presents the method as a synergetic combination of functional elements. This creates a new level of transparency that will support practitioners and managers in understanding its benefits and challenges as well as tailoring interventions to a specific case.
