Course Description

Systems thinking is understanding how different parts of a system can influence one another within a whole.

Systemic thinking, unlike analytical thinking, requires multiple skill sets to establish a holistic view of a system and explain its behavior. On the contrary, analytical thinking is used to break down a system in to simpler parts in order to identify the pieces and examine how they work together.

This course gives an in depth analysis of systematic thinking and examines whether or not participants are implementing the tools needed to make the best decisions in their companies.
