Describes the importance of feedback loops and how they can cause unexpected events in complex systems, using marine multiple use management as an example.

Resource Type: 

Describes eight principles for implementation-oriented research:

The methods in the td-net toolbox for co-producing knowledge are useful for bringing together different perspectives on a problem, recognising that not only individuals but also social groups have different ways of thinking about issues.

The Learning for Sustainability (LfS) website is a clearinghouse of information with links provided to a diverse selection of relevant resources, such as on: systems thinking; building networks; dialogue and negotiation; knowledge management; planning and evaluation; theory of change; managing outcomes; interdisciplinary approaches; adaptive man

Overview of several high profile system dynamics model-based applications, selected to show what such models look like, how they emerged (often in multidisciplinary interventions), and how they were used successfully to influence strategy, policy, and decision making.

This video of an hour-long workshop introduces the core concepts and patterns of thought of the system dynamics approach to complex problems: thinking dynamically, thinking causally, thinking about accumulations, and the key to it all, thinking endogenously.

The encyclopedia is a searchable online database of concepts that support the advancement of cybernetic and systems research and applications. There are more than 3,800 entries.

Systems archetypes are recurring generic systems structures found in many kinds of organisations, under many circumstances, and at many levels and scales. They are distinctive combinations of reinforcing and balancing processes. These system archetypes teach how to diagnose recurring problems and to design effective interventions.

This resource archive covers system dynamics modeling; agent-based modeling; and social network analysis. It contains videos, slides, lecture details, and bibliographies from the Institute on Systems Science and Health (ISSH).

These two videos describe the difference between analysis (study of the parts) and synthesis (understanding of the whole). Analysis provides knowledge; synthesis provides understanding. Describes that all systems are parts of larger systems.
