Systems Thinking Skills
The world is a complex system characterized by interdependencies, hyperconnectivity, and unpredictable dynamics. However, by assuming simple cause-effect relationships, we often oversimplify the world.
Pain & Need
The multitude of possibilities overwhelms us, and our behaviors and actions do not always lead to the intended results but instead have consequences in unexpected areas and of unexpected magnitude. These unintended consequences often go unnoticed until they exceed critical thresholds.
Systemic problems require systemic solutions that keep the big picture in mind.
Systems Thinking Skills help us recognize interdependencies and consider them in our actions.
