One thought on “What is systems thinking? by Peter Senge, Author of The Fifth Discipline

  1. In my opinion, the concept of thinking, in general, means the native mental process of examining and processing information about things and phenomena in order to know them especially as separate entities and to evaluate possibilities to use them to achieve a particular objective.

    And the concept of systemic thinking, in particular, means the scientifically organized mental process of examining and processing of information about each thing and phenomenon, both as separate entity and especially as a system, as a whole (identifying its components, connections and interactions between them), but also as part of another system, in order to know it in depth and to evaluate possibilities to use it to elaborate an organizational plan for a new system, dedicated to achieving a certain objective.

    Unlike so-called systematic thinking, systemic thinking is based on the concept of system and other holistic very new concepts, as Universal Law of Organization (a law of nature), Universal Model of Organization and Management, Systemic Vision on all things and phenomena (naturally interrelated) and Scientific Systemic Management. The book Scientific Systemic Management. Fundamental Concepts, CreatSpace, US-WA-Seattle, 2016, presents all these new concepts, benefits and ways of using them for a better life and successful businesses.

    Systemic thinking is the partial answer to the question, "How did God create this world … His thoughts." which over the last 50 years of his life has dominated thinking of Albert Einstein, perhaps the most famous physicist of all time (quote): "I want to know how God created this world. I am not interested in this or that phenomenon, in the spectrum of this or that element. I want to know His thoughts."

    Today, as new and unexpected connections between things and phenomena are discovered, more and more physicists come to attribute to the Creator of this world a systemic, holistic thinking. It is clear that He formulated the laws of nature, after which the universe was organized and functions in an unabated way, structured as interconnected and hierarchized on levels of complexity systems. Einstein said: "As a scientist, I believe that nature is a perfect structure, looking through the perspective of reason and logic analysis." "God does not play dice with the universe." And I strongly believe he was perfectly right.
