Systems Approaches to Managing Change: A Practical Guide, Paperback Book

Systems Approaches to Managing Change: A Practical Guide Paperback

Edited by Martin Reynolds, Sue Holwell

Description

In a world of increasing complexity, instant information availability and constant flux, systems approaches provide the opportunity of a tangible anchor of purpose and iterate learning.

The five approaches outlined in the book offer a range of interchangeable tools with rigorous frameworks of application tried and tested in the `real world'.

The frameworks of each approach form a powerful toolkit to explore the dynamics of how societies emerge, how organisations create viability, how to facilitate chains of argument through causal mapping, how to embrace a multiplicity of perspectives identifying purposeful activity and how to look for the bigger picture across multiple disciplines. Systems Approaches offers an excellent first introduction for those seeking to understand what `systems thinking' is all about as well as why the tools discussed herein should be applied to management and professional practice.

This book provides a practical guide, and the chapters stand alone in explaining and developing each approach.
