Gaining Systemic Insight

A way of being and acting in complexity

Systemic Insight Lenses

Systemic Insight is a way of thinking and acting in situations that are marked by ambiguity, uncertainty and complexity. The underlying questions have been, ‘how do we gain systemic insight?’ and, ‘how do we act when we don’t know what to do?’ The approach to gaining systemic insight is built around a collection of elements, represented by the colourful circles, which can be used to design a specific change process or simply as individual lenses to continuously explore situations in order to act in more meaningful ways. The approach can be applied by individuals, teams, organisations and whole communities.
