Transcript

  • 1. The Systems Perspective Casey Winner
  • 2. Systems Perspective
    • Emphasizes the important difference between a disconnected set of parts versus a collection of parts that work together to create a functional whole
    Though your body is hard to compare to a toilet, both are systems!
  • 3. EXAMPLE:
    • A BMW is considered an ultimate driving machine?
      • Why?
        • Braking?
        • Handling?
        • *It’s made up of all the unique qualities, not just one!*
  • 4. Smart people (like ourselves) used this theory
    • Einstein considered Systems Theory Important
    • His theory of relativity transformed how we saw the world
      • “ Space and time not only affect but also are affected by EVERYTHING that happens in the universe”
  • 5. How this relates to the NWSF?
    • The forum was like a bike
      • Not just made up of wheels, but of the whole bike!
      • Without all components, it would not be a bike and it would not function
      • They did not see the forum as a whole, but more separate functions
  • 6. What was the forum’s downfall?
    • The people’s vision was separate than other’s, therefore not creating a balanced, functioning Forum
    • … (Like the Bike)
  • 7. Hierarchy of General Systems Theory
  • 8. Open Systems
    • Encourages individual members to be mindful of the importance of the overall health of their industry “ecosystem”
  • 9. Coopetition
    • A blend of cooperation and competition that tries to reap the best of both worlds
  • 10. Interdependence
    • The wholeness of a system and its environment and to the interrelationships of individuals within the system
    • THINK OF AN ECOSYSTEM
  • 11. Goals
    • Defined in various ways in theories of organization and communication
  • 12. Feedback
    • A system of loops that connect communication and action
  • 13. Equifinality
    • Same goal may be reached in multiple ways
      • There is no one best way to organize
      • All ways of organizing are not qually effective
  • 14. Now that you have got through the presentation, here is some links !
    • SYSTEMS THINKING http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NCpdLKhY04&feature=related
    • This guy is corny but he does a song about systems theory…He relates systems to a zoo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ZVIlDczuEs
    • If you find any other videos, I will add them to the list!
  • 15. … In Conclusion!
    • A great metaphor within the systems perspective is a machine including a bike or car…
    • An Ecosystem is also a good example of a system!
