Can You Seize the Opportunity from Analytics If You Are Cheap?

Can You Seize the Opportunity from Analytics If You Are Cheap? | Systems thinking | Scoop.it
Today I am in Steamboat Springs attending the SAS analyst conference on emerging analytics. The tree boughs are heavy with the evening snow, and the view from my window is pristine. During the day, I am expecting to hear about new advancements in the insurance, finance and hospitality industries. My mind will swirl thinking of possibilities for manufacturing, but the reality is that the manufacturing segment is behind. They lag in understanding, providing funding, and building organizational cap

Ackoff Center Weblog: Why few organizations adopt systems thinking

Ackoff Center Weblog: Why few organizations adopt systems thinking | Systems thinking | Scoop.it

I frequently talk to groups of managers on the nature of systems thinking and its radical implications to management. In doing so I use several case studies involving prominent American corporations. At the end of the presentation I am almost alwaysasked, "If this way of thinking is as good as you say it is, why don't more organizations use it?"
It is easy to reply by saying that organizations naturally resist change. This of course is a tautology. I once asked a vice president of marketing why consumers used his product. He answered, "Because they like it." I then asked him how he knew this. He answered, "Because the use it." Our answer to the question about failure of organizations to adopt systems thinking is seldom any better then this.
There be many reasons why any particular organization fails to adopt systems thinking but I believe there are two that are the most important, one general and one specific. By a general reason I mean one that is responsible for organizations failing to adopt any transforming idea, let alone systems thinking. By a specific reason I mean one responsible for the failure to adopt systems thinking in particular.

Richard Platt's curator insight, March 1, 2015 9:42 PM

The text summary beneath videos is a good primer for those not familiar with Systems Thinking.  The points that most overlook and misunderstand the importance of that Ackoff illustrates:

  • Performance of a system depends on how the parts interact, never on how the parts act separately.
  • The fundamental thing that management in the new age must learn is how the parts of the system they manage interact, not how they act separately.
  • There is no way of running a risk-less transformation or revolution.
  • If you want to create a transformation in an organization you must be willing to run the risk of initiating radical ideas and taking the consequences good or bad that will come with that.

Why Design Thinking Should Be At The Core Of Your Business Strategy Development

Why Design Thinking Should Be At The Core Of Your Business Strategy Development | Systems thinking | Scoop.it
So many times we get together to solve a problem and nothing is accomplished—it’s frustrating. Sadly, many approaches to solving business challenges are misaligned for various reasons—pick your poison. Innovative, business changing ideas can be fleeting at times, but that’s the gist of what design thinking helps address.
