    Evolving Development: An Evolutionary Perspective on Development for an Interconnected World.Kathia Laszlo, Alexander Laszlo, Carlos Romero & Marcia Campos - 2003 - World Futures 59 (2):105 – 119.
    The notion of development has been permeated by concepts and methods from positivistic science. As a result, many development initiatives are reductionistic, myopic, and with little or impact on the improvement of the quality of life and the sustainability of communities and societies. This article marks the beginning of a transdisciplinary inquiry among the authors, motivated by direct interest in the issue of development, per se, and in particular, Mexico's development. Our inquiry departs from and weaves together our various areas (...)

    S.E.A.: Strategic Evolutionary Advantage.Alexander Laszlo & Kathia Laszlo - 2004 - World Futures 60 (1 & 2):99 – 114.
    The tides of change constantly surface new currents in the world of business. No longer is it sufficient to seek the static positional advantage offered by classical Porterian analysis. This article explores the emerging direction of business strategy as expressed by the concept of evolutionary advantage. It examines first the major forms of business knowledge over the last century, then considers mainstream frameworks for strategic analysis, and offers, as a compelling alternative, the emerging notions of evolutionary development and evolutionary learning.

    The Evolution of Evolutionary Systems Design.Alexander Laszlo & Kathia Laszlo - 2002 - World Futures 58 (5 & 6):351 – 363.
    This article presents the genesis of Evolutionary Systems Design (ESD) as a praxis that draws on General Evolution Theory and Social Systems Design methodology, in addition to Critical Systems Theory, to engage in lifelong learning and human development in partnership with the Earth. The contributions of Bela H. Banathy to the creation of ESD are portrayed as bridging evolutionary consciousness and evolutionary action. Following a brief description of the inspiration and mentorship provided by Bela in this regard, the roots of (...)

    The Evolution of Business: Learning, Innovation, and Sustainability in the Twenty-First Century.Kathia Laszlo - 2003 - World Futures 59 (8):605 – 614.
    This article-as part of a broader evolutionary inquiry toward human fulfillment, societal wellbeing, and environmental sustainability-explores new frontiers for business. In a rapidly changing global environment, corporations can become evolutionary change agents for the creation of a sustainable global civilization by fostering financial, social, and environmental results. The contemporary metaphors used to describe the business world can be limited in times when an emergent paradigm calls for new visions and actions. An evolutionary understanding, grounded in evolutionary systems theory, can open (...)
