What is Systems Innovation?
Systems innovation is a new approach to innovation that tries to tackle complex problems through the use of systems science and new technologies. It is a kind of innovation that aims to change the underlying structure of a system rather than just any of its individual parts.
What Do You Do?
We build an eLearning and collaborative platform that empowers our users to do systems level innovation. We help you think in systems, better understand complexity, to better manage and design complex systems towards realizing sustainable outcomes
The world is changing in profound ways as we go from disconnected to connected, transforming boxes and silos into networks. This creates both challenges and opportunities in the face of which traditional ways of thinking based upon reductionist simplification are failing and new networked approaches are now needed to better meet the social, economic and environmental challenges of today – to start to change whole systems rather than just parts.
We are a networked organization of some 2-3K members, 30-40 organizations and 10-15 partners that contribute to creating content, organizing events, running the website etc.
We serve a broad and diverse community of users from academics – students, researchers, professors – to management – consultants, analysts, policymakers – to designers, engineers and developers. Our educational content is used by universities and organizations small and large around the world.
