With media and political attention given to systemic failure, systems thinking is increasingly advocated as an alternative way of managing human interventions associated with socio-economic and environmental development.

This course provides a detailed account for five key systems approaches.

These approaches are:

  • system dynamics (SD)
  • viable system model (VSM)
  • strategic options development and analysis (SODA)
  • soft systems methodology (SSM)
  • critical systems heuristics (CSH)
