Why systemic management works
This chapter describes how systemic management does more than embrace all of the nine tenets of management laid out in Chapter 1. It shows how such management not only solves the problems created by conventional management, but replaces conventional management to avoid its inherent problems. Systemic management is presented as reality-based management so that, by replacing conventional management, it accounts for complexity, and includes as one of its parts the management of human interactions and relationships with ecosystems to meet the need for more effective “ecosystem-based management” (ecosystems are part of reality). This part of the book shows systemic management to be consistent at the individual, species, community, ecosystem, and biosphere levels, providing objective guidance for setting goals, making decisions, and establishing policy. This chapter defines systemic management as action to achieve normal/sustainable interactions between humans and the nonhuman.
