Systems Thinking in Complex Environments

From the Certificate in Health Innovation Leadership

Specific emphasis is given to systems thinking in healthcare from a complexity science perspective. This systems paradigm is operationalized through reflection and dissection of real-world systems and the role of the innovation leader in the assessment and intervention design within complex systems. Participants describe systems using systems concepts and principles, apply chaotic and complex perspectives to different systems, assess system change approaches, and develop a plan to achieve innovation leadership competency. Systems thinking provides a language and a set of tools for describing and understanding the forces and interrelationships that shape the behaviors of systems. People who are systems thinkers see problems differently.
