Systems Thinking for a Changing World

"Become A More Insightful Systems Thinker"

Our world is filled with interdependent elements and forces of change that are all part of complex systems. Yet, business managers and policy makers often view the world through restrictive linear perspectives that do not adequately capture this larger complexity.

This program will help you become a more insightful systems thinker. You will learn to appreciate how you are surrounded by systems that are greater than the sums of their parts and how the connectivity between system elements and forces of change can be managed for organizational advantage. Through case studies and applied exercises, participants will learn systems thinking tools and approaches that will enhance opportunity identification and problem solving to challenges your organization may face in the future.
