PG I have an idea on how to start. Finish the sentence “For me…
(1) “For me… systems thinking seeks commonalities between different systems, looking or GENERAL systems principles.”
(2) For me….systems thinking is a recognition of all things as the emergent properties of relationships, and the continuous interplay between all things.
(3) For me…systems thinking is a study of how things are working together
(4) For me….“Systems thinking is the mental effort to uncover endogenous sources of system behavior.”
“What do systems thinkers and system dynamicists do? We use systems thinking, management insights and computer simulation to hypothesize, test, and refine endogenous explanations of system change.”
