  2. 2. Take-home messageA circle in 4 quadrants helps tounderstand and use Holistic Management PLAN WHOLE TESTS TOOLS
  3. 3. Beginnings• Holistic Management use –1980’s and early 90’s • Brian Sindelar, Range Scientist, Montana State U. • Roland Kroos, CHRM • Charley Orchard, graduate student
  4. 4. Beginnings…linear challenge of HM Framework
  5. 5. Beginnings…• Concepts of holism –Endless processes of ecosystem and human system interactions – A spiral process, but A circle can represent this
  6. 6. Systems Thinking Wilson and Morren, 1990 "Systems Approaches for Improvementsin Agriculture and ResourceManagement" –Hard Systems –Soft Systems
  7. 7. Systems ThinkingKolb’s Learning Styles [Experiential Learning,1984] – Diverge out (and sense the situation) – Assimilate into models – Converge on possible solutions – Accommodate solution to situation
  8. 8. Kolb’s 4 QuadrantsACCOMMODATE DIVERGE out andthe solution sense the wholeCONVERGE on ASSIMILATE intosustainable models (theories,solutions by hypotheses) testing

  11. 11. Christine Miller LRES 421I attended the screening of Tapped on 2/17/10Holistic Management CircleHolistic Goal hypothetical values expressed? Forms of production demonstrated?New resource base: awareness The holistic goal seemed to be to open up the eyes up of the audience in regardsto bottled water and the wastefulness and risk associated with the unregulated andunsustainable practices of bottled water companies.I. Quadrant One- The Whole, Resource Base The whole includes the bottled water companies, the communities that theyaffect, and the consumers. The resources are all of the people listed above, the earth’sresources including the water itself and the aquifers where it comes from, themechanisms for pumping it from the ground, and the petroleum products involved inmaking the bottles.II. Quadrant Two- Tools some items are in the present Resource Base, otherswould be Tools of Technology or Creativity as you suggest. The tools included the people with different knowledge about how the watermining or bottle production affects them and their communities and their own personalhealth and about the lack of regulation in the industry. Also, the film itself was a tool.III. Quadrant Three- Testing Questions The action of making a video may or may not have addressed the root cause ofthe problem. It addressed many aspects and a variety of people spoke, however itseemed like some ‘alternative sides to the story’ were not addressed, and some aspectswere missed altogether. I think the weak link was related to a social and biological weaklink where they interviewed several people living in Corpus Christi, Texas, and all hadhealth problems that they attributed to the nearby oil refinery. Coincidentally, each ofthe interviewees was obese. The producers did address how unsustainable theproduction of bottled water is, and how unregulated it is also. What aboutSocial/cultural? Sustainability? Marginal reaction?IV. Quadrant Four- Action Plan The producers made this documentary and portrayed information in a clear waythat definitely could have an influence of consumer’s decisions of whether or not to buybottled water.Monitoring and Feedback Loop
