"Syntegrity" is a formal model presented by Anthony Stafford Beer, a British theorist, in his work on management cybernetics, the science of large, complex, probabilistic systems.[1]

The word Syntegrity is derived from the words "synergistic" and "tensegrity". Its etymology signifies the ideal balance of tension and compression that makes structures stronger and more stable as they grow.

"Syntegration" is a trademarked name of the proprietary methodology that delivers the Syntegrity protocol in the context of complex organizational challenges. The methodology enables a large group of people to be networked together to achieve major insights, alignment and breakthroughs in condensed time frames.[2]

Typical areas of application include: strategy formulation, overall transformation, planning, innovation, ERM, M&A, data and analytics, customer experience, product launch, and more.[3] The words "Syntegrity", "Team Syntegrity", and "Syntegration" are all registered trademarks.
