What is Systems Thinking?

In this week's episode, Ricardo explains the concept of Systems Thinking.

He compares systems thinking with traditional analysis, where the system is broken down into smaller components to assess problems, impacts, and improvements.

In Systems Thinking, the process is practically the opposite. The focus is not the components but the connection and interactions between them and their behavior over time.

Systems thinking, despite using various tools and simulations, is a holistic and often behavioral process seeking to identify connections and influences that are not seen in the usual and traditional way.

Ricardo ends the episode by discussing the balance between system overload (reinforcement) and balance (equilibrium) as key work components. He reinforces this concept with several applicability examples.
