Systems thinking requires a shift in mindset
It’s very easy to fall into the trap of thinking about social change as a linear process: Identify a problem, propose a solution to said problem, implement the solution (usually in the form of a project or programme).
Sometimes this can be effective, but most of the time the challenges we are trying to solve are a lot messier and more complex than this.
Systems thinking requires a shift in mindset, away from linear and towards the bigger picture.
A systems thinker uses this mindset to work within and untangle the complexity of social change.
