The Systems Thinking Playbook: Exercises to Stretch and Build Learning and Systems Thinking Capabilities
By Dennis Meadows & Linda Booth Sweeney
Systems theory is a field that tries to explain how things work in general, drawing parallels across different areas to show that similar structures create similar dynamics no matter where they occur. This kind of knowledge is sometimes difficult to understand and even more difficult to internalize because it involves questioning assumptions, but with assumptions out of the way, opportunities for creativity and learning arise naturally. Filled with fun and interactive exercises, this book makes systems theory come alive, with real learning fostered through play.
