In the past years we have been seeing a proliferation of tools and canvases in many professions. As an unintended consequence, intuition, imagination and creativity have been pushed into the background. The general requirement is ‘simplification’, instead of embracing complexity or uncertainty – even though complexity and uncertainty are more a part of our lives than ever before.
This module flips the usual script. Because Systems Thinking is not just a set of tools or techniques. Systems Thinking is an initiation into an attitude. The classes will help you develop the systems thinking attitude, and to do so draw on insights from various fields such as architecture, psychoanalysis, art, management, design and literature. This approach reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the systems thinking as a lens, rather than a discipline.
