Systems Thinking in the Public Sector: Practical Examples

Systems Thinking in the Public Sector: Practical Examples | Meetup

Alidad Hamidi says:

In the next Systems At Play Community Meetup, we will hear from Luke Craven,  a Canberra-based systems consultant and researcher with over a decade of experience in Australian public sector who is also known for developing the System Effects methodology.

*** The Topic ***
There is growing excitement in the power and possibility of systems thinking as a tool to drive real, transformative change in the public sector and beyond.

But do the results live up to the hype?

In this talk, Luke will reflect on his experiences as a systems thinking practitioner to argue that despite our best intentions, most organisations still apply the concept of “systems” as a loose metaphor—a systems gloss—that adopts the language but not the fundamental logic or principles of systems thinking.

With case studies and war stories, Luke will share a number of practical examples of how he has responded to his challenge to position systems thinking as a tool that can make a difference.
