Systems Thinking Certification Training: A key reason for using a systems thinking approach is that it correlates to improved performance.
Systems thinking competencies such as process orientation, systems logic and understanding of mental models have the highest correlation (paywall) to improved organizational performance.
When you think about it, that’s not so surprising given that the larger the business the more complex the interactions. Businesses exist in many and assorted contexts. It is crucial to be able to evaluate the interrelations of systems, comprehend the forces that are at work on the business and subsequently choose changes that result in improved production both in the near term and in the long term.
This is where systems thinking shines.
Systems thinking requires a shift in our perception of the world around us. In order to build a new multidimensional thinking framework, we need to discover the dynamics and interconnectedness of the systems at play.
For example, take systems mapping. Systems mapping is one of the key tools of the systems thinker. It provides an exploration of the system, communicates understanding, and allows for the identification of knowledge gaps, intervention points and insights.
There are many ways to map, from analog cluster mapping to complex digital feedback analysis. There’s also behavior over time graphs, causality maps and feedback loops. However, the fundamental principles and practices of systems mapping are universal.
The most common approach is to identify and map the elements of things within a system to understand how they interconnect, relate and act in a complex system, and from here, unique insights and discoveries can be used to develop interventions, shifts, or policy decisions that will dramatically change the system in the most effective way.
Applying systems thinking to problem-solving can lead to much deeper levels of understanding than a normal research or exploration process — especially in design thinking, where the need to solve is often very strong.
