The term “systems thinking” can mean different things to different people but in general, thinking is how we build meaning from information -an action we are doing all the time whether consciously or subconsciously. Being aware of how we think and how the world works is called system thinking.
Why is “Systems Thinking” important? It encourages you to look at things from an entirely different perspective and ask better questions before jumping to conclusions.
It’s your mental model that makes a difference because that’s what you build on to make meaning out of information.
