Here is a set of “Integrated Thinking” quotes in “Digital Master.

1 Integrative thinking means being able to hold two opposite hypotheses and integrating them into a new and synergistic way.

2 The integrative thinking is also defined as the ability to constructively face the tensions of opposing models; and instead of choosing one at the expense of the other, generating a creative resolution of the tension in the form of a new model that contains elements of the individual models, but is superior to each.

3 Integrative thinkers build models rather than choose between them. Their models include consideration of numerous variables — customers, employees, competitors, capabilities, cost structures, industry evolution, and regulatory environment — not just a subset of the above.

4 Integrative thinkers consider the problem as a whole, rather than breaking it down and farming out the parts. Integrative thinkers approach problem architecture differently.

5 Systems thinking would benefit from integrative thinking but systems are defined as parts interacting toward a shared purpose/aim/goal.

6 Integrative thinking is looking at an issue from multiple perspectives. Some would argue that integrative thinking is simply synthesis.

7 Integrative thinkers differ from conventional thinkers among a number of dimensions; they tend to consider most variables of a problem to be salient.

8 Rather than seeking to simplify a problem as much as possible, integrative thinkers are inclined to seek out alternative views and contradictory data.

9 When faced with two opposing options that seem to force a trade-off, integrative thinkers strive for a creative resolution of the tension rather than simply accepting the choice in front of them.
