Summing up

If you've completed all three courses—Complex problems and systems, Seeing and describing systems, and Social innovation and system entrepreneurship—then by this point, you've begun to see the world, and especially the problems you're interested in, through a different lens. You're beginning to think about complex systems and to see dynamics within the systems you observe and with which you interact. You've learned many new concepts and tools which can help you to approach your work in a more strategic way, and you're developing a new vocabulary with which to interact, share, and continue to learn about these things. The article, Key Words: Building a Language of Systems Change (PDF) summarizes some of the key concepts for you.
