What systems thinking is

Systems are linked groups of elements organized to serve a particular purpose. Each system is also part of other, larger systems.

Systems Thinking is a way of seeing concepts, objects, and subjects as interconnected systems, rather than isolated entities, in order to enhance learning and deepen understanding.
