What is Systems Thinking
Systems thinking is a "new way of seeing " (Peter Senge) that complements and renews our conventional way of seeing things.
The conventional way of looking at things is characterized by seeing and dealing with snapshots of events, analyzing and categorizing based on "reductionism" thinking, and a tendency to view patterns and causality in a linear manner. However, these ways of seeing makes it difficult to continue to deliver results in today's increasingly complex and volatile organizational and social systems.
Systems Thinking intends to create more essential and sustainable results in complex systems by seeing dynamic patterns over time, the big picture including connections, and the fundamentals of our worldviews.
