The origin of the Macroscope name

The word ‘macroscope’ was borrowed from Joël de Rosnay in his book introducing systems thinking, entitled The Macroscope. According to the author, a “macroscope”, should such an instrument exist, would allow us to observe and understand the infinitely complex.

That is exactly the domain of Macroscope: systems thinking applied to the organization, in itself a complex living organism, and the successful introduction of changes enabling its transformation through leveraging information technology.

From agile projects related to software engineering to large scale reengineering of the business - doing the right things, doing them the right way, delivering the expected capability and business value, that is the Macroscope way to managing business risks related to change initiatives.
