100 Systems Thinking Resources for Leaders


Why is Systems Thinking So Important?

People are made up of systems (circulatory, respiratory, etc.).

Organizations involve people (who are made up of systems) and organizations themselves are systems.

Organizations (which are systems) themselves work within systems (regulatory, legal, etc.).

Those systems that organizations operate within also work within larger societal and global systems.

Thinking in Connections

…Systems and connections are the stuff we and organizations are made of.  To begin to solve today’s complex problems, systemic and connected thinking is the kind of thinking we need to use.
