Enabling a Better Tomorrow is a systemic approach for developing a systemic strategy which may be employed to intervene in a current situation to effect the desired results while minimizing the likelihood of creating new problems in the process.
Enabling a Better Tomorrow was developed in response to those who have continued to claim that Systems Thinking is too difficult, too esoteric, has too much jargon, etc. The elements of this series were created as an example of what was doable in a straightforward simplified manner. You can let me know how well it turned out.
We begin with a new realization of reality. With an awareness of how our current approach to solving yesterdays problems has created the majority of today's problems and an unfolding of experience we're positioned to pursue a more effective intervention.
A description of the situation as objective as possible with a critical evaluation of assumptions and behavior trends leading up to the current situation forms the basis for what is to follow.
The necessary understanding develops though identifying the interacting components responsible for the patterns of behavior and the current situation. This is achieved though both analysis and synthesis using both qualitative and quantitative modeling.
Further understanding is developed though an understanding of stakeholders. The last step in this stage is the establishment of a boundary as to what's addressable and what's not.
A strategy is then developed based on the understanding with another critical assessment of assumptions and the identification of leverage points.
Once the strategy is developed it's up to the stakeholders to alter the network of interactions to produce the desired behavior patterns which result in creating the desired future and a new reality that will have to be dealt with.
