Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course serves as an introduction to systems thinking methods and technical tools that are foundational to all other advanced EMPA coursework. This course focuses on answering three essential questions: (1) Why does systems thinking exist (i.e., its promise and popularity)? (2) What is systems thinking? (3) How do we do systems thinking? We also explore two subsequent questions: (4) How do we apply systems thinking to personal mastery and professional development? (5) How do we apply systems thinking to the social and policy challenges we face?
