The Anodos Foundation Board of Directors is pleased to present the 1998 Arthur M. Young Award to Mr. David Sibbet.
- On Process Management and Organizational Theory: The Sibbet Award Application
- The Sibbet/Le Saget Stages of Organization Model
Awards of Merit
In this inaugural year of the Arthur M. Young Award, we find ourselves in unusual circumstances. Besides the excellent application by David Sibbet, two projects were submitted that represent years of tireless effort by their authors to utilize the Theory of Process in mainstream society.
- Frank Barr, M.D., is recognized as the leading expert on the Theory of Process and the creator of “bioprocess” theory.
- Bob Whitehouse, Ph.D., is making great progress towards fulfilling his commitment to make the Theory accessible to students of all levels.
These individuals exemplify and validate a prediction made by Jack Saloma, when he wrote in 1980:
“Researchers and students of the theory of process may well effect a fundamental restructuring of medical science and education before a skeptical scientific community acknowledges the significance of Young’s theoretical achievement.”
The directors of Anodos Foundation applaud these endeavors and hope to encourage each of them towards fruition with a 1998 Award of Merit.
