"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."
