A system is a network of interdependent components that work together to try to accomplish the aim of the system. A system must have an aim. Without an aim, there is no system. The aim of the system must be clear to everyone in the system.

But what does it all mean really and how does it apply to our businesses? What does it take to have a systems thinking or holistic view and approach?

In this presentation, we'll take a look at systems thinking, how we can get into this mindset and how it is used in the real world. With some interactive exercises, historical and present examples we hope this session will leave you with an understanding of systems thinking and its many benefits.
