Our socio-economic systems continue to grow and evolve. We need to acknowledge that, consequently, our decisions often fail—they are ineffective and create unexpected side effects. The speed of execution is increasing constantly and markets and systems respond almost immediately, making decision-making challenging. There is little or no room for failure.
This book analyzes real-world strategy and policy challenges, addressing the interconnectedness of the markets/systems we live in.
The case studies and the approach proposed can be used to better understand reality and its complexity, and to integrate stakeholders for a better solution. Practically, it can be used to identify problems, analyze their boundaries, design interventions, forecast and measure their expected impacts, implement them and monitor and evaluate their success/failure.
The book touches upon global issues related to policy making and strategic management, as well as issues related to sustainable development for both the public and private sectors. It will be essential reading for practitioners looking to get to grips with systemic thinking in business and policy-making.
