So I spent a weekend at a workshop organized by Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship learning about a method called Systems Thinking. I’m not going to try to define the concept here. Wikipedia has done that better anyways. Click here to check it out.
Instead I just give some personal random short opinions: Really cool method. Hard to grasp at first. Everything is a system. Systems can be complex. Systems are dynamic. They have elements. Elements have connections and relationships. System thinking is good for solving complex problems. Iceberg model works well for describing different factors in the system. Post-it notes don’t stick always that well.
…and so on.
Here’s a note I made during the two days:
