International Seminar Week 2016

Systems Thinking

The International Seminar Week 2016 has put its emphasis on the topic of Systems Thinking. It is no longer enough to simply examine and act upon each part of a system in isolation. It is necessary to examine how the part interacts with each other; and work on the system as a whole. Systems Thinking looks at relationships, connectedness, process, the patterns of a system, the whole, and context. Thanks to our renowned international teaching staff we were able to offer a wide variety of systems design approaches in this year's lectures and workshops.

The ISW 2016 took place Monday, 18 through Friday, 22 April. Many thanks go out to our lecturers and workshop leaders. And, of course, to all our involved staff members.
