The Importance of Systems Thinking

To resolve the challenges we face today at a global corporate level, it is imperative that our business leaders must overcome the erroneous beliefs that lead to the predicament. Fundamentally, this would require diverging away from a "linear" approach of thinking which focuses on instantly fixing the most apparent errors resulting in negative correlation with the system, to a "systems" approach that emphasises perspectives and practices in conjunction with the foundational laws of sustainability. Irrespective of the fact that literature available on systematic thinking dates a few years back, only a few organizations have understood the significance of this approach and adopted it. This is due, in part, to the limitation of a coherent framework to pioneer the application of systems thinking. I believe that more investment needs to be done in this field of study, so that more organizations are able to not only understand the significance of implementing this framework, but also understand its application, and apply it within their organizations to attain sustained competitive advantage.
