Publisher's Summary

Want to get better solutions to your problems? Suffering to understand why things went wrong when you did it all right?

The principles of Thinking in Systems will help you with these issues. Systems surround us, and we may not even know it. One system is your household. The corner-store is a system. Your school class, your work department, and your football team is also a framework. You are a part of more complex systems such as your government, the economy, or the world; learning about their changing nature and finding optimal solutions to their problems. Due to inventions such as the telephone, television, computers, and the internet, the world is more connected than ever. The manner in which we feel reality has changed significantly. It is not enough to use conventional thinking to understand the world as it functions today. We need to know the elements of system thinking to see beyond mere connections between cause and effect. This audiobook will help you find strategic solutions to every modern and complex issue.

The Thinking in Systems is based on the fundamental archetypes of the system, our mental models related to them, and step-by-step methods of implication to fix them. Learn how to use archetypes to solve your problems, in your company, in your relationship, and in social relationships. See the reasons and grasp the causes of today's politics, economics, and education. Widen your viewpoint, think objectively, examine your dream thoroughly, and be more logical and rational simply by applying system thought.

Think differently, and you get different outcomes.

  • Learn the language of systems thinking
  • Learn ways to improve your logic thinking
  • Learn to understand and find solutions to the system problems called' archetypes.

In our interconnected world, complexity, organizational pathways, and networks are gaining increasing importance. The Thinking in Systems provides real-life examples to make this type of thinking's adoption process smooth. They are defining your problems more clearly, finding better, long-lasting solutions to your problems, learning how to build strategic plans using structure diagrams, and knowing your position and power in the world.

If you enjoy complex systems thinking, you will enjoy this book

I really enjoyed this book. I like system thinking, particularly when it’s not simplified but treated as a deep study methodology.

This is not an easy introduction book, but a series of case studies that are used to illustrate how systems thinking can be used to address complex problems.

Possibly more for folks who already appreciate system theory and systems thinking, but definitely worth a listen if you are in that camp.

I will delisted s few times I think.

Very well read as well, which is not easy in a complicated topic area.
