Systems Thinking Intro with Lorraine Steyn

June 27, 2024 4:00 pm (UTC)

Systems thinking is the macro behaviour that we must understand in analyzing our world. A system always produces what it is designed to do, even if that isn't at all what we meant it to do!

Systems are self-maintaining, and contain balancing and/or reinforcing feedback loops.

We'll look at how these work, and what happens when they fail. You'll see how to apply systems thinking to the systems that are all around us.

This is an introductory talk to the world of Systems Thinking, condensed into 45 mins plus time for questions at the end.
