Leverage Points: Places to Intervene in a System

By Donella Meadows~ Folks who do systems analysis have a great belief in “leverage points.” These are places within a complex system (a corporation, an economy, a living body, a city, an ecosystem) where a small shift in one thing can produce big changes in everything. This idea is not unique to systems analysis — […]

Systems thinking: a cautionary tale (cats in Borneo)

This whiteboard animation video about systems thinking tells a story of cats in Borneo (a.k.a. Operation Cat Drop parachuting cats) that occurred in Borneo in the 1950's. It is a reminder that when solutions are implemented without a systems perspective they often create new problems. More details in this book Parachuting Cats into Borneo: https://amzn.to/2wBfSD0 We live in complex systems. Systems thinking is important to take into account in our sustainable development to make sure that we take all systems into account before acting and trying to solve our sustainability problems. As a result of not using systems thinking in this story, the World Health Organization decided to parachute live cats into Borneo. “Operation Cat Drop” occurred courtesy of the Royal Air Force and eventually stabilized the situation. ** Learn about sustainability for free with short animation videos!
