What is systems thinking?

Systems are linked entities organized to serve a particular purpose. Every system is also part of other, larger systems.

Systems Thinking is a way of seeing concepts, objects, and subjects as interconnected, rather than isolated. Understanding systems deepens and enhances learning.
