A change in systems must be accompanied by a skills upgrade exercises, as new systems demand new skills of staff(Stafford, B.1995 p. 4) This is because the new systems will demand less number of staff and also more advanced skills of the few staff.

(Stafford, B.1995 p. 4) The application of systems has seen many firms emerge with rigid systems, which refuse to adapt to change due to staff attitude and past strict controls habits (Furnell, Katsikas, Lopez, 2008.P. 302). The viable systems model to be installed at Baghlaf Group is an open system in terms of interactions with outside environment and adopts the view that the organization is dynamic and evolves every second to adapt to external and internal changes. Executive duty or role is to build a viable organization that can withstand and adapt to change, by setting up a dynamic equilibrium (Harman & koohang, 2007, P. 341)The system is a predictable and with cyclical reciprocity informed by constraints.

The Baghlaf Group holdings is a moving equilibrium seeking for the best practice by improving what they do best as per company policy but this becomes a life long process as the achievement of company objectives leads to set up of new targets and the process oscillates upwards with new standards and new targets of performance.
