systems thinking | what's a girl ghana do? | Sustainable Intelligence | Scoop.it

"What I’ve come to learn is how easy it is to be wrong in doing systems analysis, no matter how conscientious we are. Time and time again, I make mistakes in trying to map out the system; I make mistakes trying to draw out the: interactions and players; motives, influences and push/pull factors; cultural influences; and, predicted outcomes, disturbances, or resilience. In Ghana, my Canadian intuition for how systems and processes work is next to useless. I tend to rely heavily on this intuition and in Ghana, it has been wrong too many times to count."

Of Systems Thinking and User-Centered Design |

"The elusiveness of the dynamic between parts and whole has to do with the difficulty of envisioning different elements of the system at similar degrees of fidelity or detail. The system as a whole can only be conceptualized in terms of its parts, and to have a really distinct and granular understanding of a future system you need to be able to envision the components in even richer detail."

Learning in a Changing World and Changing in a Learning World: Reflexively Fumbling towards Sustainability

"... the nature of sustainability challenges seems to be such that a routine problem-solving approach falls short. Transitions towards a more sustainable world require more than attempts to reduce the world around us into manageable and solvable problems but instead require a more systemic and reflexive way of thinking and acting with the realisation that our world is one of continuous change and ever-present uncertainty. This alternative kind of thinking suggests that we cannot think about sustainability in terms of problems that are out there to be solved or in terms of ‘inconvenient truths’ that need to be addressed, but we need to think in terms of challenges to be taken on in the full realisation that as soon as we appear to have met the challenge, things will have changed and the horizon will have shifted once again."
