CarnegieXchange - Thinking in circles; systems thinking and systems science
Taking a whole systems approach seems to be the current buzz phrase. Dr Duncan Radley discusses, what exactly does it mean? What does it entail? And can it be used to solve today’s big societal challenges such as poverty, homelessness and obesity?
Should we be using it to guide all our business decisions? Should we even be using it to decide whether or not to buy a bird feeder for our garden?
This seminar will delve into some of the key concepts behind a whole systems approach. We’ll look at issues such as what is a system? What is systems thinking? And how is it different from conventional thinking? What methods are available? And how do you actually apply a whole systems approach in practice?
Come along to join the discussion, it might just change the way you look at everything; and help you decide if you should buy that bird feeder.
