Thinking in Systems and Mental Models AudioBook Summary
Do you want to understand the roles of thinking in systems and how they affect, hinder, or aid in fulfilling your life? Do you want to increase your thinking skills and build effective mental models?
Without a broad view of interconnectedness, our problem-solving skills are limited and short-sighted, and our abilities to make long-term, beneficial decisions are hampered. If we don’t acknowledge our interdependence’s complexity, then we are doomed to replicate a system that will ultimately fail. Just as every node on a network contributes to the final result, every action of a member of a particular organizational system contributes to the outcome.
The human mind expects events and describes fundamentals by building small-scale models of the real world. A mental model is a way we represent and understand an event, phenomenon, or system compactly.
