     Apply Systems Wisdom to Problem-Solving  

Applying Systems Thinking to Solve Complex Problems Due to the exponential growth of information and rapid changes, many of today’s problems are over-complex and interdependent. Sometimes, you try to fix one piece of the problems but cause more issues later on. Thus, all stages must be handled with attention and proficiency to ensure success. Organizations today have to aggressively leverage digital information technologies, collaboration platforms, and tools as the enabler of communication, collaboration, social interaction, and brainstorming, for proactively engaging in problem-solving systematically.

The New Book “Problem-Solving Master” Chapter IV: Leverage Systems Thinking in Problem-Solving The world has become so dynamic with the exponential growth of information, it is full of opportunities and problems. Many problems do exist because they are either ill-defined or the concept cannot be adequately captured contextually. Further, there’s the problem that the same word means different things to different people because they carry different emotional baggage or have a cognitive difference. So, what’re the logical scenarios for problems diagnosing and solving? And how to leverage Systems Thinking in problem-solving?

Systems Thinking and Digital Management Systems Thinking is a representation of how we see patterns in life, it is also an emergent property of the basic aspects of nature, layer on layer of systems, each with their own emergent behavior, coming together to create super systems we interact with daily. Systems thinking can help today’s top business leaders and managers develop systems approaches to either make effective decisions or solve complex business problems in a structural way. Because Systems Thinking helps to create a common rationale between different perspectives, understanding the interconnectivity between parts and the whole, thus, systematic problem-solving has a better chance to solve the real problem with fewer side effects. Here are the multiple perspectives on how to leverage systems thinking in digital management.

Apply Multidimensional Thought Processes to Problem-Solving Scenario With the overwhelming growth of information and an unprecedented level of uncertainty, there is known unknown and unknown unknown. Many problems become so complex, fact-finding and prototyping are crucial steps in discovering premium solutions. Digital leaders and professionals must keep their minds open, enhance interdisciplinary understanding of the problem, and take the step-wise approach to solve them smoothly.

Systems Thinking and Problem-Solving Systems Thinking is about understanding interconnected relationships between parts and the whole. The business problems today usually have many causes and can be very complex. Leveraging Systems Thinking to problem-solving includes framing the right problems, understanding the interconnected relationship between different problems, as well as figuring out potential solutions.

The “Future of CIO” Blog has reached 3 million page views with about 7000+ blogs posting in 59+ different categories of leadership, management, strategy, digitalization, change/talent, etc. The content richness is not for its own sake, but to convey the vision and share the wisdom.

It reflects the color and shade of your thought patterns, and it indicates the peaks and curves of your thinking waves. Unlike pure entertainment, quality and professional content takes time for digesting, contemplation, and engaging, and therefore, it takes time to attract the "hungry minds" and the "deep souls." It’s the journey to amplify your voice, deepen your digital footprints, and match your way for human progression.
