Ana Filipa Couvinhas - Applying Systems Thinking is Like Packing for a Trip

Ana Filipa Couvinhas - Applying Systems Thinking is Like Packing for a Trip

Systems thinking is like packing for a trip. Every itinerary will bring you different activities, climates, cuisines, and people. You choose the destination, prep, and pack. Much like with systems thinking, you will only see the complete picture after doing the research. Or, in this case, once you reach your final destination. This presentation will walk you through my work experience with systems thinking in different industries and identify the core similarities in every scenario.
