According to Peter Senge, learning organizations encourage a holistic approach to understanding and leading organizations called ‘systems thinking.’ Systems thinking stems from the tenets of system theory where each process integrates with all the others. Basically, it means the ability to see the big picture and to be able to see the interrelationships between what might, at first, seem to be completely unrelated.
Systems thinking focuses on how the individual that is being studied interacts with the other constituents of the system. Rather than focusing on the individuals within an organization, it prefers to look at a larger number of interactions within the organization and in between organizations as a whole. Figure 2.4 (page 62) and 10.3 (page 188) (please see the two items I attached, I uploaded those figures from the textbook as an attachment) in your textbook illustrate how four parts of a system integrate to help us evaluate, lead and change business process and functions for the better. For this paper, you are going to analyze your readiness for change, or that of an organization in which the change needs to occur.
Prepare and submit 3-4 page paper that briefly describes a change at school, work or another area of your life and apply the systems model. A well-constructed paper will reference 3 or more scholarly sources including at least 1 journal articles such as those assigned and retrieved from Brandman’s virtual library, and adhere to APA standards.
