Systems Thinking Implications

The systemic pattern or framework is a thinking style.  It causes one to think about a pattern of corresponding questions.  These questions include:

  • What is the name of system in focus?
  • What is its environment?
  • Are we interested in how it's composed?
  • Why are we interested in this system at all?
  • What is the basic nature of the system (living, inert, intellegent, designed, etc.)

This leads to a slower, maybe healthier, lifepace.  These questions take time to answer.  This may be useful in some enterprise situations, and not in others.
