Dr. Len Troncale at California State Polytechnic University first introduced the concept of system processes (called isomorphs) that were found in almost all mature systems in the early 70's.  He has named 80+ of them.

  • Hierarchy/boundaries/meta-structures
  • Feedback mechanisms
  • Cycles
  • Adaptation
  • Self-organization
