Systems Thinking

Systems thinking is an approach that focuses on the way a system's constituent parts interrelate, as well as how systems work over time and within the context of larger systems.

Systems thinking is based on the belief that the component parts of a system will act differently when isolated from the system's environment or other parts of the system.

Systems thinking as a skill is the ability to perform problem solving in a complex system.
