Origins

Systemic Thinking has its origins in:

  • The Theory Of Constraints (TOC) - Eliyahu Goldratt's brainchild [more]
  • The Theory of Inventive Thinking (TRIZ) - Genrich Altshuller's brainchild [more]
  • Advanced Systematic Inventive Thinking (ASIT) - Roni Horowitz's simplification of TRIZ [more]
  • System Dynamics (SD) - Jay Forrester's brainchild [more]
  • Systems Thinking - Peter Senge's simplification of System Dynamics [more]
  • Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) - John Grinder's and Richard Bandler's brainchild [more]
  • Lateral Thinking - Edward de Bono's brainchild

Each of the above is a hugely powerful method in its own right and using any one of them in isolation delivers significant benefit.  Using them in combination magnifies their impact - possibly exponentially.

Systemic Thinking takes things a step further, enabling people to capitalise on the power of the repeating patterns that underlie these techniques - in concert and in a fraction of the time they require.

Systemic Thinking has also been enhanced by - amongst many others

  • Just In Time (JIT)
  • Total Quality Management (TQM)
  • Lean
  • 6 Sigma
