Systems Thinking and Practice

In Systems Thinking and Practice, we undertake research on systems ideas and their application in real-world settings. System thinking involves looking at the interconnections between parts of a whole rather than concentrating just on the parts. This way of thinking is particularly useful in addressing complex, highly interdependent situations with high levels of uncertainty and can help develop appropriate interventions to bring about improvements.

We work with a wide range of issues and settings including: environmental decision-making for sustainable development; information systems management and organisational change in both public and private sectors.
