What is Systems Thinking?

Systems Thinking is one of those difficult terms to define without restricting its full meaning. We can say that Systems Thinking is not trying to predict the future, even adapt to the future, or solving problems reactively.

Systems Thinking is related to the understanding of the forces that shape the future, acting on structures that will make this future.

Thus, we can define Systems Thinking as the competence to evaluate the impact of our decisions in time and space.

Which problems that Systems Thinking helps to solve?

The Systemic thinking is applied to complex problems, such as setting the overall strategic direction of an enterprise, planning the future of a city, and all sorts of complex issues.
