In order to better manage the growing complexity, change, and diversity of our times, organizations are increasingly turning toward systems thinking approaches.

Unlike quick-fix management solutions, systems thinking is holistic and creative, considering the wholes before the parts, and approaching problem solving from a variety of viewpoints instead of one-size-fits-all.
