We provide keynote talks, short intensive trainings, and certifications in Systems Thinking, Systems Mapping, and Systems Leadership in both live and online formats to organizations and individuals.
We (literally) wrote the book on Systems Thinking, Systems Mapping, and Systems Leadership. We effort mightily to ensure that our books are scientifically sound and publicly accessible.
As an innovation lab, we know that systems thinkers need practical and powerful tactile tools to do their work. We are committed to developing tactile tools for Systems Thinkers and Leaders.
Funded by NSF, USDA, Cornell, and others, we try (to every extent possible) to make as many of our findings freely accessible. We believe knowledge wants to be free. Browse our Blog or InfoBase and get support.
Our Lab is fond of the adage, "There's nothing more practical than a good theory." We focus on deep theory and basic research that is also pragmatic and applicable to everyday lives. We look for projects that bridge our scientific research with real-world, practical, everyday experience. We work with excellent teams of excellent people. We don't just think the theories, we innovate and build real stuff that makes lives better and increases human potential and organizational effectiveness.
