Week 8: Becoming a systems (thinking in practice) practitioner
Welcome to Week 8, and well done for getting to this final week of the course.
By now you should have a good idea of what systems thinking is and what putting it into practice might involve for yourself in your own context. You will also have gained some ideas about what is meant by a practitioner in general from the introductory videos to each week, and in particular the use of the juggler metaphor and the different balls that need to be handled. In this final week you will develop the notion of a systems practitioner, consider some of its implications and relate this to the four balls that need to be handled to develop your own systems thinking in practice.
Watch the following video which discusses developing systems practice over time.
By the end of this week, you should be able to:
- decide for yourself what form of systems thinking in practice you want to adopt and why you made that choice as well as how you intend to develop as a systems practitioner.
