GHARAJEDAGHI SYSTEMS THINKING PDF

Since he is managing director at the Interact, Institute for interactive design, and since Adjunct Professor of Systems thinking at the Villanova University School of Business. They argued: To think about anything requires an image or concept of it, a model. To think about a thing as complex as a social system most people use a model of something similar, simpler and more familiar. Traditionally, two types of models have been used in efforts to acquire information, knowledge and understanding of social systems: mechanistic and organismic. But, in a world of accelerating change, increasing uncertainty and growing complexity, it is becoming apparent that these are inadequate as guides to decision and action. The growing number of social crises and dilemmas that we face should be clear evidence that something is fundamentally wrong with the way we think about social systems.

Since he is managing director at the Interact, Institute for interactive design, and since Adjunct Professor of Systems thinking at the Villanova University School of Business. They argued: To think about anything requires an image or concept of it, a model. To think about a thing as complex as a social system most people use a model of something similar, simpler and more familiar.

Traditionally, two types of models have been used in efforts to acquire information, knowledge and understanding of social systems: mechanistic and organismic. But, in a world of accelerating change, increasing uncertainty and growing complexity, it is becoming apparent that these are inadequate as guides to decision and action.

The growing number of social crises and dilemmas that we face should be clear evidence that something is fundamentally wrong with the way we think about social systems. We then develop a third type of model, one we believe does not suffer from these inadequacies, a social system model which seeks to penetrate beyond the nature of machine and organisms to understand social systems in their own right.

In the first chapter of his book "Systems thinking" he explains his point of view: The analytical approach has remained essentially intact for nearly four hundred years, but systems thinking has already gone through three distinct generations of change.

The first generation of systems thinking operations research dealt with the challenge of interdependency in the context of mechanical deterministic systems. The second generation of systems thinking cybernetics and open systems dealt with the dual challenges of interdependency and self-organization neg-entropy 4 in the context of living systems.

The third generation of systems thinking design responds to the triple challenge of interdependency, self-organization, and choice in the context of sociocultural systems. With the businesses adapting, the new concept of business architecture was presented as promising alternative. Gharajedaghi explained the context: In a global market economy with ever-increasing levels of disturbance, a viable business can no longer be locked into a single form or function.

Success comes from a self-renewing capability to spontaneously create structures and functions that fit the moment. In fact, the ability to continuously match the portfolio of internal competencies with the portfolio of emerging market opportunities is the foundation of the emerging concept of new business architecture The Balanced Scorecard developed by Robert Kaplan and David Norton at about the same time enabled the business to measure overall corporate success against goals on qualitative as well as quantitative dimensions.
