What is systems thinking - part III

What is systems thinking - part III | strategic learning | Scoop.it

John Wenger


Via Viktor Markowski
Sue Hickton's insight:

"We must stop ourselves from repeating old mistakes and develop our abilities to think bigger so that we can go further.  Hand in hand with this, we need also to develop greater ease with the complexity we will see before us and greater confidence to deal with being a little less certain about things.  The effects of the system are there, whether we decide to look or not. "

Viktor Markowski's curator insight, January 4, 2013 5:13 AM

In both of these cases, systems thinking forces us to look at the whole, not the individual parts.  It is the job of the modern manager to re-vision their function from one of “controller” to one of “steward”.  The focus is on purpose, values and meaning.  What does this business exist to achieve or create in the world?  What values will guide us in doing this?  How is this meaningful for the people who work here?  It is the role of managers to ensure that the correct conditions exist for these things to be realised, not to tell people what to do.

strategic learning
We work in a volatile, uncertain, changing and ambiguous (VUCA) environment and the old traditional "strategies" need to be thrown out the window when it comes to building a flexible and adaptive workforce. Agile, fast-thinking, adaptive employees with the ability to continually translate data patterns and insights into strategic learning is paramount to gaining a strategic foothold in a competitive marketplace.

The 7 Most Powerful Ideas In Learning Available Right Now | strategic learning | Scoop.it

"Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y. But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise."

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | strategic learning | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.
