Systems Thinking - Using the "Big Picture" to Rethink the Business
Degree program: Executive MBA
Organizations are complex systems - and therefore they are closed systems. Unfortunately, most managers (and most scholars as well) look at organizations as open systems that can be controlled at will. The "control problem" is aggravated by silo thinking and data overload which is the direct result of the open systems framework. Organizations and managers in a state of shock are the result. The course will show participants an alternative view of organizations which is informed by management cybernetics.
