To help us become better decision makers. The more insight and understanding we have about a problem, the less likely we are to react instinctively and the more likely we are to achieve the outcomes we desire.
To become effective systems thinkers:
• We need to understand system concepts and principles.
• We need to acquire some useful system thinking techniques that allow us to explore a system’s properties.
• We need a systematic process that allows us to use our systems thinking techniques effectively to gain insight and understanding quickly and effectively.
• Above all we need to be curious about system behaviour.
