Systems Thinking

In today's world, we are getting more and more connected and thus many things in our life are made up of complex systems. When we look at how complex these systems of systems are, we can easily see that the way we have been taught to "isolate" problems and work on it, sometimes can have outcomes we did not want.

I have been actively teaching system thinking classes and I wonder why this is not more widespread in our education systems. Simple tools like the causal loop diagramming technique and the iceberg models are great toools to equip everyone with. We need to educate more people to look beyond the obvious and go deep when troubleshooting problems. I have added a short video i made on the iceberg model which I find simple and easy to adopt.
