Systems dynamics, systems thinking and Soft OR By Jay W.Forrestor
Interest in system dynamics is spreading as people appreciate its unique ability to represent the real world. It can accept the complexity, nonlinearity, and feedback loop structures that are inherent in social and physical systems.
I find this really beautiful. People understand their world around them through recognising patterns, and understanding how these patterns work. In my personal opinion, I have found that communication can reduce the wonder of something so easily, because of it’s liner structure. There can be so much abstract knowledge to a subject, which is lost in translation in so many ways. Systems dynamics sounds like a more natural way to uncover and understand our surroundings.
Understanding comes first, but the goal is improvement.
