Description

<p>In a global market economy, a viable business cannot be locked into a single form or function anymore. Rather, success is contingent upon a self-renewing capacity to spontaneously create structures, functions, and processes responsive to a fluctuating business landscape. Now in its third edition, <i>Systems Thinking</i> synthesizes systems theory and interactive design, providing an operational methodology for defining problems and designing solutions in an environment increasingly characterized by chaos and complexity. </p> <p>The current edition has been updated to include all new chapters on self-organizing systems, Holistic, Operational, and Design thinking. Gharajedaghi covers recent crises in financial systems and job markets, the housing bubble, and environment, assessing their impact on systems thinking. A companion website to accompany the book is available at www.interactdesign.com. </p><br><br><ul><br><li>Four NEW chapters on self-organizing systems, holistic thinking, operational thinking, and design thinking</li><br><li>Covers the recent crises in financial systems and job markets globally, the housing bubble, and the environment, assessing their impact on systems thinking</li><br><li>Companion website to accompany the book is available at interactdesign.com</li></ul>
