Systems Thinking

What is Systems Thinking?

We use the word "system" all the time. "We've got to establish a system." Or "What can I do, it's the system's fault." But what are all these systems and how can we understand them to make better decisions?

We all operate (mostly without even realising it) in many many systems. Organisations, families, communities, ecosystems, countries, machines... Even our bodies are complex biological systems. Furthermore, all of these systems are interconnected. Understanding them allows us to recognise structures that generate patterns of behaviour and find leverage points where our actions produce the desired effects.

Systems thinking is a complementary (and equally important, but overlooked) discipline to analytical thinking. Whereas analysis is interested in understanding separate components, systems thinking is concerned with the behaviour of the whole. Some of the direct benefits of learning the discipline include:
