About me

Complexity as passion

My name is Chris Eberl. During my studies in electrical engineering and information technology, I was fascinated for the first time by control engineering and then came across the special subject of cybernetics. I.e. the science of control and regulation of systems. Especially in nature, these are often complex systems that can only be understood through networked thinking.

Mission Networked Thinking

For over 20 years now I have been trying to make the world better understandable as a networked system. Why, for example, do things happen that are apparently impossible or unexpected? Where is the magic in a certain tricky system? The heart, so to speak, of the inherent complexity.

Not seeing the wood for the trees

In addition, even as a generalist I often have to struggle with not being able to see the wood for the trees because of the many options. In other words, the more you think, the higher the danger of being blocked. Or just “stuck” as it is so nicely called in English.

Kübernetik with “ü”

Strongly influenced by the ingenious and unfortunately deceased bio-cyberneticist Frederic Vester I try to make my decisions systematically. With the Kübernetik with “ü” I have developed a tool for it first and foremost for myself. I have noticed by the influx of people that the approach can also help others. It is therefore very important to me in the development of Kübernetik that it can be used by everyone. So you don’t have to be an engineer or a mathematician.

I myself use the procedure several times a week for my own questions. It has also become part of my basic mindset to think things networked. If the learned networked thinking and the examples on this website help others who don’t know what to do at the moment, I would be all the happier. Because something that meanwhile – I have to admit – makes me somewhat aggressive are linear simple ways of thinking. Especially resulting simple ideologies. Whether politically, privately or professionally.

I think if more people learn the art of networked thinking (book recommendation), then and only then can they find simple or at least applicable solutions to complex questions and advance the world. And this without, in the worst case, achieving the opposite of the well-intentioned. A “but you have to do something” that has fallen into agitation can be dangerous. For ill-considered paradoxes can make everything worse. A popular TED-Video of the sympathetic development aid worker Ernesto Sirolli clarifies this. target=”_blank”>Ernesto Sirolli clarifies this.

Learn the Method with the Kübernetik Canvas

I wish all prospective Kübernetikern, who have been through Übung (with the Kubernetik-Canvas) want to advance their lives self-determined. Whether now, by making the world better, more neutral and perhaps more mature, assessable. Or if one would like to change things effectively and/or make better. I am always looking forward to feedback and application examples. With your permission I also publish them on this website as Expert Kübernetik.

Support for all those who are stuck

Gladly I support you at a coffee or your team in a workshop. Especially when a lot of brain fat has been used and still no breakthrough has taken place, Kübernetik is the solution of choice.

For social projects I also offer one session per bono 🙂 Simply Contact with me.

Have fun with the Kubernetik
