MGMT 6150 - Creating Sustainable Solutions Through Systems Thinking♦


(3 sem. cr.) Leaders in business must often take creative approaches to solve problems. Systems thinking is a popular method of problem-solving because it allows leaders to see how problems interrelate and influence one another, which often leads to optimal, sustainable solutions. Students in this course can expand their perception of problem-solving and stimulate positive social change on important global issues by exploring systems thinking as a process whereby problems are viewed as individual components within a larger system. The course provides a framework for analyzing relationships within a system and for avoiding the risks associated with viewing problems in isolation. Students use systems thinking tools to model single-, double-, and multiple-loop feedback systems, at the micro and macro levels of analysis. In addition, students learn about scenario building and examine how the practice of systems thinking provides a foundation for creating sustainable outcomes for organizations and society.
