Systems and complexity

The Perspectives Project

Gene Bellinger, the creator of Systems Thinking World, has launched a new initiative called The Perspectives Project.

The learning resources, stories, applications, and presentations that Gene is producing through The Perspectives Project are an excellent complement to the innovative interactive book Beyond Connecting the Dots, Modeling for Meaningful Results, which he co-authored.

We’re serialising Beyond Connecting the Dots in our systems thinking and modeling series.

The Perspectives Project surfaces noteworthy stories of relationships and their implications, to provoke thought, foster deeper understanding, create insights, and enable more effective action.

A good overview of the Project is given in the video above (also available on YouTube), and for background understanding see the foundation series. To interact with the visualisations you’ll need to sign up for a free Kumu account.
