Investigations into the Effect of Structural Composition on the Efficiency of Multinational Bodies
This research can be gathered under the general heading of Cybernetics (the study of organisational structure) which subsumes Systems Thinking. The researcher believes that multinational companies can be considered as complex systems, with emergent behaviour. Most existing studies and models have been conducted from a Western perspective and are set in the context of simpler organisational structures. There is no knowledge of a synthesis of three systemic methodologies (Soft System Methodology, System Dynamics and Viable Systems Modelling) to non-western, comprehensive regional intergovernmental organisations, such as the GCC, has been previously attempted which addresses a gap in knowledge.
