    Description

    Are you stuck in a rut despite your best efforts to get out? Looking for long-term solutions to your problems?

    We have the best of intentions to improve our conditions, but often our solutions fall short of improving our lives. Sometimes our best efforts can result in the opposite of what we want over time. How can we avoid these unwanted results? 

    If we apply conventional thinking to complex issues, we often maintain or increase the very problems we want to fix. There is, however, a solution to get the desired results.

    Think in Systems is a concise information manual offering high-level problem-solving methods for personal and global issues. The guide presents the main features of systems thinking in an understandable and everyday manner, helping you to develop this skill top analysts and world leaders use.

    If you thought that complex thinking is only for people who deal with complex issues like running a company or country, think again. Every issue is complex. Running out of gas is a simple problem, but I’m sure you’re dealing with much greater headaches on a daily basis.

    Your life is a system. Everything that is connected to your system (life) is a part of it. However, you are just a subsystem in the larger picture. Your town, country, the world, the solar system are all bigger systems you are a part of. These systems are interconnected. Whatever you do will affect the system, and whatever the system does will affect your life.

    Systems can have positive and negative effect on your life - or on the life of people generally. The greatest problems like hunger, war, and poverty are all failures in the system. Similarly, fights with your loved ones, being stuck in a rut at your job are also system failures. They are not only your fault. Thus they can’t be fixed with a simple cause-effect thinking.

    Learn to use systems thinking in your business, relationships, friendships, and general political, socio-economic, and environmental issues. Systems thinking boosts your critical thinking skills, makes you more logical, enhances your analytical abilities, and makes you more creative. Systems thinking won’t put extra pressure on your cognition. Quite the contrary, you’ll have fewer headaches knowing that you surely didn’t miss any detail when you tried to solve a problem.

    Identify your problems more accurately. Find solutions to your problems, don’t just treat the symptoms. Map out a strategic action plan to change your circumstances. Become more patient by understanding the world - and your place in it - better. Shift your focus from the unimportant details and focus on the real issues. Stay a learner. 

    Apply systems thinking in your problem solving, decision making, and strategic planning without the need to become a technical professional.

    I have a system processing outlook on things.

    I was not aware that I had AA systems thinking outlook on life. This gives me a name for my model of thinking and ways to improve my thinking . And encourage others to think this way

    Started out strong and objective and faded into the wind

    The beginning of this book was very informative and had a decent objective foundation. About half way through the book the author started moving towards her idea of implementing the structure and political views started watering down her overall message. Politics aside, she went from objective to a biased subjective view of implementing these systems and actors. If I were to recommend anything from this book, it would be the first half.

    The book is short and lacking in depth.

    This seems like it's been optimized to check all the boxes for anyone looking for info on the subject, but doesn't go into any depth.

    Good, though not quite what I thought it was

    This is not a book on developing business systems!
    Based on the title, I had thought it was a book relating to business systems.

    This book is more of a personal development book geared toward trying to simplify your life through developing a systems in your personal life.
    The book overall was OK, it at least was an interesting story and kept my interest.

    Plagiarized. Still good though.

    If you want to get some of the exact same content, word for word, you can also check out 'the systems thinker' by Albert Rutherford.

    This is the first time I've actually seen truly plagiarized work outside of school, so I'm impressed people still get away with that.

    It's still a good starting point for anyone getting into systems thinking.

    A Refreshing Look At The Subject

    From an engaging opening the book did a nice job of developing the concept of systems thinking. Brought concepts to even apply to close interpersonal relationships. Professionally, I was in systems analysis, now retired, and i enjoyed a.refreshing look at the subject. The narrator did a nice job as well.

    A very good introduction to Systems Thinking

    The concept itself (Systems Thinking) is very important in our daily life and in business and Corporate Strategic planning.

    The book sheds a light on how to think differently towards things and view them in systems with very useful examples from multiple categories which serves as a good and Rich introduction to the topic.

    In terms of the Performance Quality of the Audio Book, I would give it only 3 stars.
