Why is it so challenging to think systemically? Because systems thinking involves a large number of different skills seven, at least that all require practice.

This guide summarizes the systems thinking method and shows you when to use each skill during the process. It also contrasts the skills with traditional approaches, explains what the skills look like “in action,” and provides tips for everyday practice.

In this newest volume in Pegasus’ bestselling Toolbox Reprint Series, Barry Richmond demystifies the “thinking” in systems thinking. The volume opens with an overview of the seven skills necessary to become a true systems thinker. Then, each two-page spread takes an in-depth look at an individual skill. The seven thinking skills—dynamic, system-as-cause, forest, operational, closed-loop, quantitative, and scientific—are also mapped onto the four-step process that underpins the systems thinking method, so you know when to best employ each skill. Includes plenty of examples of the skills in action, tips for honing the skills, and diagrams to capture key concepts.
