Twelve leverage points - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Twelve leverage points

The twelve leverage points to intervene in a system were proposed by Donella Meadows, a scientist and system analyst focused on environmental limits to economic growth. The leverage points, first published in 1997, were inspired by her attendance at a North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) meeting in the early 1990s where she realized that a very large new system was being proposed but the mechanisms to manage it were ineffective.

Systems thinking is something that is easier to comprehend than actually do, but it can be worth the effort in terms of additional insights and new approaches to seemingly intractable problems.

Peer Coaching as a Tool for Culture Change

Peer Coaching as a Tool for Culture Change | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it
How does an incoming CEO make systemic changes in an established company when its employees have become demoralized or fearful? I’m thinking of a storied manufacturing firm that only recently emerged from a decade of turmoil and drift. An independent analysis concluded that an overly ambitious expansion effort in the mid-2000s had resulted in the company launching projects it lacked the resources to deliver. Managers and engineers, reluctant to bring bad news to bosses who had advocated for expansion, let troubled projects fester until problems became acute.
