Listened to . Great overview of VSM (for a newbie such as myself). Some tidbits:

  • Jon Walker who writes The VSM Guide was applying VSM to coops in the UK in the 80s (including )
  • In VSM management becomes a function of the overall system, not an individual role attainable only by those with a class privilege.
  • We should think of VSM as an explicitly socialist technology.
