Issues facing organizations are extremely complex, and yet we are often surprised when solutions and decisions for these issues fail to "solve" the problem. Indeed, we all know of cases where the solution actually made the problem worse! Standard problem-solving/decision-making models are useful for addressing certain types of issues but are often inadequate, by themselves, for effectively addressing more complex issues.
Our Systems Thinking course is currently offered several times each year. Dates, times and descriptions of additional courses in this series will be announced throughout the year.
