18 May Peter Senge talks about interdependence
Whether you are part of a family, an organizational team, or a business in a supply chain, systems thinking is a valuable approach to understanding the complexity of today's world. Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline, senior professor at MIT and founder of the Society for Organizational Learning, shares his leadership and systems thinking perspectives with IBM. Senge focuses on the toughest problems to solve and the mental models today's leaders need to build a smarter planet. Today's leaders need to be prepared to re-evaluate their strategies, work in multiple groups to find solutions, and have the vision to work with high-leverage solutions over time. Working smarter means working collectively and based on collective intelligence across cities and supply chains to produce social, ecological and economic well-being.
