Leadership Basics Series: Systems Thinking

Systems Thinking

Systems thinking is an approach that considers how components within a larger structure operate and interact. Systems thinking aims to assess and address a problem holistically by considering linkages and relationships, while taking the whole system into account rather than just its individual parts. In public health, this means considering the boundaries and stakeholder s of and within a system and learning how the system’s parts interact.
