Abstract Abstract: This paper investigates the use of feedback block diagrams to explore the role and mechanisms behind gatekeeping and the relationships between identity, values and behaviour. Feedback block diagrams are also used to investigate the ways in which power dynamics impact on technological and social development. The models are introduced by a discussion of values and virtue ethics and the relationship between technology and society. In addition a model of behavioural and attitudinal change of individuals, organisations and societies is presented in terms of single, double, triple and quadruple loop action learning. Copyright ©
