The Rubber Band Demo

Dag Forssell

This script and the accompanying video are designed to introduce and demonstrate the basic concept of PCT. The article Perceptual Control: Management Insight for Problem Solving, in the book: Management and Leadership: Insight for Effective Practice, contains another description of this Rubber Band demonstration. Please read the article to see how this demonstration shows one control system in action, supported by an entire hierarchy [see book, exhibit 17, for a conceptual outline] of control systems operating continuously. Enjoy the video!
