Colabria Action Research recommends Beyond Connecting the Dots – A Systems Thinking Interactive Learning Environment. Beyond Connecting the Dots is a novel and thoughtful systems thinking experience. Here is a description from the makers —
Beyond Connecting the Dots is a new kind of book on Systems Thinking and Modeling providing an exciting experience that goes beyond the printed word. The book contains living models you can interact with right in the book, by unfolding the model story, and in many cases adjusting the model parameters on–the-fly to see the results.
Colabria recommends, uses and advocates systems thinking and systems dynamics as a core, indispensable sense-making activity for business, non-profits, government, the environment and civil society. For decades Colabria network delegates have been users of ISEE Systems Stella and iThink. Beyond Connecting the Dots provisions a fundamentally new way to experience and adopt systems thinking.
Beyond Connecting the Dots starts at a very basic conceptual level assuming you don’t have a modeling background. The book progresses to become increasingly advanced. Beyond Connecting the Dots provides expert knowledge that will be both challenging and rewarding. Please view the video Beyond Connecting the Dots. At only $9.99 everyone may discover the enormous power of systems thinking.
