Systems thinking is Troika’s default methodology. When we’re working on understanding how to solve complex problems we start with the big, big picture first. Systems thinking has been around for awhile now and it is well proven. It has its foundations in the field of systems dynamics, founded in 1956 by MIT professor Jay Forrester.
It is a fantastic way to solve problems especially when they are complex in nature. Fundamentally, systems thinking is focused on understanding all of the touch points, and drivers, impacting any given problem or challenge. It seeks to understand whole systems, whole ecosystems and whole environments. Traditional analysis in stark contrast, seeks to dissect and separate systems into individual components, so they can be studied in great detail. This is often a necessary requirement, however heading into too much detail too early comes with risk. Staying out of intimate detail until the entire system is fully understood can enable new perspectives and new solutions to be generated.
