  • Provides a holistic, discipline-agnostic approach to address problems and messes
  • Provides a methodology scientifically grounded in systems theory and a wide variety of transdisciplinary supporting principles
  • Emphasizes the nonlinear nature of all complex problem solving endeavors
  • Includes a systemic thinking self-assessment to allow the reader to determine his or her aptitude for thinking systemically

Whether you’re an academic or a practitioner, a sociologist, a manager, or an engineer, one can benefit from learning to think systemically.  Problems (and messes) are everywhere and they’re getting more complicated every day.  How we think about these problems determines whether or not we’ll be successful in understanding and addressing them.  This book presents a novel way to think about problems (and messes) necessary to attack these always-present concerns.  The approach draws from disciplines as diverse as mathematics, biology, and psychology to provide a holistic method for dealing with problems that can be applied to any discipline.

This book develops the systemic thinking paradigm, and introduces practical guidelines for the deployment of a systemic thinking approach.
