Systems thinking

Systems thinking is a way of making sense of the complexity of the world by looking at it in terms of wholes and relationships rather than by splitting it down into its parts.[1] It has been used as a way of exploring and developing effective action in complex contexts,[2] enabling systems change.[3] Systems thinking draws on and contributes to systems theory and the system sciences.
