    DescriptionSystems thinking can help you tame the complexity of real world problems by providing a structured way of balancing a broad, overall view with the selection of the right level of detail, truly allowing you to "see the forest for the trees". Only by taking a broad view can we avoid the twin dangers of a silo mentality - in which a fix "here" simply shifts the problem to "there" - and organisational myopia - in which a fix "now" gives rise to a much bigger problem to fix "then".
