[#011] If Russ Ackoff had given a TED Talk… Systems Thinking

“The peformance of a system depends on how the parts fit, not how they act taken separately.”

Dr. Russell Ackoff

In this inspiring talk, Ackoff discusses the importance of looking at systems as a whole when improving. He discusses the folly of looking at a system as individual parts and improving them in isolation. Finally, he pointedly warns us about the dangers of building the wrong thing right over the right thing wrong.
