Overview

Systems thinking approach complex problem solving with a collection of tools and methods based on the philosophy of system science. The practice of systems thinking makes us :

  • Sensitive to the circular nature of the world we live in;
  • Aware of the role of structure in creating the conditions we face;
  • Recognise that there are powerful systemic effects we are unaware of; and
  • Realise that there are consequences to our actions which are not obvious

Building upon problem analysis skills from Foundational Systems Thinking course, this 3-day course focuses on problem solving with Systems Thinking. Structured techniques are used to model and resolve systemic problems. Knowledge gained in solving standard systemic problems are applied to solve the current problem.
