I am often challenged that systems thinking is just another workplace fad. I thought I’d share my systems thinking journey, how it has benefitted me and my work and how it makes a lasting difference.
Adam Jones is an Operational Research Analyst and heads up Strategic Forecasting in the Department for Transport (DfT).
Adam is currently part-seconded to the Systems Unit in the Cabinet Office.
Adam helped to set-up the cross-government Systems Thinking Interest Group (STIG) with the aims of promoting systems thinking, building systems thinking capability and creating a network of practitioners sharing best practice.
When it comes to designing systemic policy solutions to complex problems, I believe that collaboration, on its own, is not enough. So what is needed beyond collaboration? I thought I’d share my thoughts in a blog post and share three concepts that might help you engage with stakeholders on the topic.
