Course content

This certificate may change the way you think about the situations you face. You’ll learn to think more holistically, taking account the interconnectedness of all components making up the problem situation and working more collaboratively with others in the situation. You’ll find out how to relate the ideas of key systems thinkers to your own practice. The discipline of systems thinking gives you the tools to challenge your approach to complex situations; to assess the relationships of different components within a situation; to consider the roles different stakeholders play in the situation including yourself as a systems thinking practitioner; to recognise that each person brings with them their own perspective on a situation and to work with those multiple perspectives.
