systems thinking tools: a users reference
What is this resource?
This is a handbook of systems modelling tools largely focused on providing an introductory understanding to causal loop diagrams, stocks and flow, and systems modelling. The handbook was created by Dr Daniel Kim, a co-founder of the MIT Center for Organizational Learning.
Why is this worthwhile?
There is a broad landscape of systems tools, many of which are complex and have a rich theoretical and conceptual history, making it difficult to get a cursory view of their applications. This handbook offers an accessible view into several key tools and may help determine which tools are appropriate for which contexts.
Who is this useful for?
The handbook will be most useful for those beginning to consider the design of their investigations who would benefit from an introduction to different systems modelling tools.
