1 Any "Thing" we study can be thought of as either a "system" or a "component.” Interdependent Thinking is a true system view of the world.

2 Humans progress has gone through three stages: Dependence, independence, and interdependence. What works and what doesn´t, depends on the nature of the organizational interdependence that needs to be enabled.

3 Interdependent thinking practices system thinking, holistic thinking and pattern thinking to connect, understand and harmonize the world in order to make the system (the world) as a whole better than just sum of pieces.

4 World = an interdependent and hyperconnected system with interactive and overlapping components.

5 There are two different types of organizational interdependence. Structured cross-border interdependencies can be enabled with formal organizational elements and loosely structured cross-border interdependencies.

6 The “organizational design problem” would be to build a great mix of organizational elements that enable the organizational interdependence, enforce cross-functional communication and collaboration.

7 The collaboratively interdependent organizations can reach the higher state of business maturity because limited hierarchy works best in a creative environment where the free flow of ideas and their prompt implementation is a key element of business success.

8 Often, we make decisions implicitly, also unknowingly, and sometimes unwisely because we think those things as independent components; rather, we should think the system as a whole, every component is interdependent with other components, and then the decision can be made more thoughtfully and wisely.

9 To gain the in-depth understanding of interdependence, it is important to apply System Thinking to view the digital organization as an interconnected and interdependent whole; follow systems principles for solving problems in a structural way under complex, uncertain and ambiguous circumstances.
