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. He coined the term "systems of ideology," partly based on his frustration with behaviorist psychology, which he believed to be an obstacle to sustainable work in psychology.  Niklas Luhmann , a sociologist, developed a sociological systems theory.
