BUS 608 - Systems Thinking: Creative Solutions to Complex Problems
Peter Senge, a leading researcher in the fields of systems thinking and organizational learning, defines systems thinking as both a thinking skill and a language for understanding and working with complexity. When you understand the complexity of a situation, you are better able to think and act in ways that produce desired results, without causing harmful side effects. In this seminar, learn a unique approach to systems thinking as a method and tool for working with change, solving complex problems, and creating individual and team learning.
