The Hsue-Shen Tsien Think Tank: Adopting a Systems Science Approach to Address Complex Problems

Hsue-Shen Tsien was the founder of systems science. He pioneered the development and application of systems thought, which began when he formulated systems engineering principles that were used in China’s aerospace industry, and continued as his ideas spread throughout Chinese education, industry, and government. A namesake think tank—the focus of this booklet—has emerged, which offers insights into areas as diverse as environmental management, policy-making, and education.
