Sample text

How many variables do we have to connect? To answer these questions systems thinking proposes this final rule. ” In fact, the FIRST RULE of systems thinking obliges us to zoom inside a system— thereby identifying increasingly smaller subsystems—as well as outside a system to identify ever larger supersystems. Are we thus destined (or “condemned”) to having a holistic view without limits? Do we have to zoom ad infinitum? Certainly not! Systems thinking is the art of “seeing” the world, and in order for what we see to have a true meaning it must depend on our cognitive interests.

It is the discipline that integrates the [other four] disciplines, fusing them into a coherent body of theory and practice. [. ] Without a systemic orientation, there is no motivation to look at how the disciplines interrelate. By enhancing each of the other disciplines, it continually reminds us that the whole can exceed the sum of its parts (Senge 2006, p. 12). Among the most notable results of systems thinking, the most important in my view is its ability to allow us to understand, explain, and simulate the modus operandi of control systems, which are the basic elements of biological and social life; of populations, societies, and organizations; and even of most physical phenomena.

Flood 1999, p. 13). However, we must not limit ourselves to explicitly stating the variables we consider useful but must be able to measure the “variations” they undergo over time. For systems thinking, each object must be observed as a “vector of variables,” and the dynamics of the objects are perceived only if we are able to observe and measure the dynamics of the variables they represent. Systems thinking also requires us to select the relevant variables and restrict their number so as to consider only those most relevant for the construction of models.
