Systems thinking - 2006-08-21 11:16 AM -
Systems thinking is a mental model that promotes the belief that the component parts of a system will act differently when isolated from its environment or other parts of the system, and argues against Descartes's reductionist view. It includes viewing systems in a holistic manner, rather than through purely reductionist techniques. It promotes gaining insights into the whole by understanding the linkages and interactions between the elements that comprise the whole "system", consistent with systems philosophy. Systems Thinking recognizes that all human activity systems are open systems; therefore, they are affected by the environment in which they exist. Systems Thinking recognizes that in complex systems events are separated by distance and time; therefore, small catalytic events can cause large changes in the system. Systems thinking acknowledges that a change in one area of a system can adversely affect another area of the system; thus, it promotes organizational communication at all levels in order to avoid the silo effect.
Systems intelligence - 2006-08-21 10:56 AM -
Systems Intelligence is an approach to the systemic vision of the real world, proposed in Finland by Raimo P. Hämäläinen and Esa Saarinen, 2002. It was developed in the fields of engineering sciences and applied philosophy. It refers to the way of thinking that spurs a person's problem solving capabilities, connecting the concepts from the engineering world to the human mind. Systems Intelligence (SI) is considered an intelligent behavior inside complex systems, often human in nature. Key concepts a person uses when acting systems intelligently are feedback and interaction.
