My final assignment for the TU812 Managing Systemic Change course was safely submitted earlier this week. Now the long wait to find out the result. I should have it by mid-June, which isn’t that far away but feels like forever.
I’ve come across some interesting thoughts and thinkers during the study. I’ve also learned a few new words and new ways of using some familiar ones. I do intend to pursue this area further although I might give myself a little time off from working too hard on it!
The single most valuable thing has probably been reinvigorating my habit of sketching out ideas in diagrammatic form. Systems thinking seems inclined to use these visual and exploratory ways of developing thoughts and letting understanding of systems emerge. That isn’t new to me but I’ve done it less in the last two or three years so it will be good to return to the habit a bit more.
