Let's TELL THE (SYSTEMS) STORY!
I think it would be great for a group of us who are conversant with/ digging into systems understanding to start writing stories for the TELL THE STORY theme.
These might introduce people to systems concepts - perhaps an article on each of Senge's so called laws
Today's problems come from yesterday's solutions
the harder you push the harder the system pushes back
behaviour grows better before it grows worse
the easy way out usually leads back in
the cure can be worse than the disease
faster is slower
cause and effect are not closely related in time and space
small changes can produce big results - but the areas of highest leverage are often the least obvious - eg the trimtab on the rudder
you can have your cake and eat it too - but not at once
dividing an elephant in half does not produce two small elephants
there is no blame
They might tell stories (if we can find them!) of how particular tools from the systems world have been successfully used. eg Participatory Systems Mapping https://www.cecan.ac.uk/sites/default/files/2019-03/PSM%20Workshop%20method.pdf
Anybody else up for it?
