I love the analogy in this article between linear problem solving V's systems thinking and more holistic approaches. It's like throwing a rock and a live bird! The linear approach is great for determining where the rock might end up but how does it understand what the bird will do, predict it's final resting place or control it's path along the way?

As your Block’hood grows, resources get more complex — and with 90+ blocks available for building, an infinitude of choices must be balanced with hood-ecology, taking into account living space, agriculture, commerce and manufacturing. By simulating the carbon and energy contributions of each part of a city, Block’hood supports a growing movement of “ecological urbanism;” the game hopes to encourage gamers to find solutions for climate change.

How To Overcome Resistance to Change: A Systemic Approach

How To Overcome Resistance to Change: A Systemic Approach | Thinking about Systems | Scoop.it
Any time leaders try to introduce change into an organization they will be faced with the fear and conflicts of the people involved in the changes. In our series we've been talking specifically about digital transformation but it is true for any major shift. If these reactions and resistance to change are not managed they will remain real and present and disrupt the making of those changes.

Preparing medical students for the 'third science' | Penn State University | Thinking about Systems | Scoop.it

Penn State College of Medicine faculty are helping shape the "third science" of medical education by defining what health systems science is and how student perception of it should be addressed in designing curriculum.


A linking domain connects core curricular and cross-cutting domains to each other or to other areas of curriculum. Systems thinking involves an awareness of the larger social and economic context in which health systems exist.

Most of us are familiar with Santayana's famous quote. "Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it." But what does this mean, in practical terms, for how we teach history? Are there opportunities to help our students better recognize and apply lessons from the past to understand the present and what may happen in the future?

“Education today too often focuses on what can be measured, rather than what young people need to know. CivilizationEDU is a perfect example of how games can be used to teach and assess key 21st century skills that are hard to measure on multiple-choice tests,” said Connie Yowell, CEO of Collective Shift and its global learning movement LRNG, which is merging with GlassLab. “We’re thrilled to offer CivilizationEDU as part of GlassLab’s collection of games for next generation learning. This beloved game is an important addition to the rich learning resources the LRNG ecosystem offers online, in classrooms, and through the communities that are participating in the LRNG Cities movement.”

Why CEOs of the future will be leaders-for-hire | Thinking about Systems | Scoop.it

Jean Martin of insight and technology firm CEB predicts that future leaders will be brought into firms for short periods to do specialist tasks.


There will need to be a shift in leadership development towards strategic thinking, managing information and critical thinking. And a new emphasis on systems thinking. It may mean using coaches rather than line managers. There are some profound implications for MBA programmes too. In 30 years' time, there will be leadership micro-learning opportunities everywhere.
