The systems framework is also fundamental to organizational theory. Organizations are complex, goal-oriented entities.  Alexander Bogdanov , an early thinker in the field, developed his tectology , a theory widely considered a precursor of Bertalanffy 's general systems theory . One of the aims of general systems theory was to model human organizations. Kurt Lewin , a social psychologist, was influential in developing a systems perspective with regard to organizations.
