Systems Thinking

Systems thinking focuses on how the object being studied interacts with the other constituents of the system. Systems thinking is very effective in resolving complex problems involving multiple actors, actions and interactions. Systems thinking has its foundation in system dynamics, which was coined by Professor Jay Forrester in 1956. System dynamics is an approach to understanding the behaviour of complex systems over time. One of my summer courses is called System Thinking, Modelling and Simulation in Health Care.
