Management Cybernetics in Application

As an application orientated research institute, the IfU has been developing methods and tools specifically for small to medium-sized enterprises since 1988.

In interdisciplinary research projects we develop practical solutions with the aid of our research partners.  These solutions will be implemented and evaluated in all enterprises concerned.  The theories of Stafford Beer, Frederic Vester, Fredmund Malik, Klaus Henning as well as Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela (amongst others) form the scientific bases of our work.
