Being an LO dilletante/eclecticist, it is particularly exciting to see the
increasing concurrence (hopefully towards more willing and active
conspiracies - ie breathing togethers!) between many disciplines being
drawn together by a growing consciousness of the need for systems
thinking. I am reading the "Web of Life" by Fritjof Kapra and am
enthralled by the notion of 'deep ecology' as the anticipated foundation
of all systems thinking and I suppose a future global consciousness of
viable and sustainable economies and societies.
The challenge for me is connecting my fairly narrow world of organisation
development systems thinking to wider and deeper arenas of systems
thinking that place organisations in their fullest context of economy,
society and environment, locally (deeply) to globally (widely). Truly
creative and sustainable learning organisations need to be defined by
these deeper and wider contexts. How do we connect the incredible
valuable notions of "learning organisations" to such contexts?
The more I think or read systemically the more of a novice I feel...
