Systems thinking offers a powerful perspective, a specialized language, and a set of tools that can be used to address 
problems and understand complex situations. Systems thinking is a way of understanding that emphasizes the relationships among a system’s parts, rather than the parts themselves. It helps us see both the forces that shape change and our role in creating them. Based on a field of study known as system dynamics, systems thinking has a practical value that rests on a solid theoretical foundation.

Systems Thinking is a key part of the Innovation Academy charter. Learn about some of the key tools of Systems Thinking used at school here:
