The Complete Guide to Systems Thinking and Learning uses the Systems Thinking ApproachTM to guide transformation change in our personal lives and organizations. Systems Thinking was first popularized in 1990 by Peter Senge with his best-selling book, The Fifth Discipline. Unlike Analytical Thinking where the parts are primary and the whole is secondary, in Systems Thinking, the whole is primary and the parts are secondary.

The Complete Guide to Systems Learning & Thinking explains how to use simple concepts and specific tools to move you from theory to practice and from chaos and complexity to elegant simplicity. This book will enable you to make the shift from seeing elements, structures, and functions to seeing the process, interrelationship, and outcomes.
