Systems Thinking for Social Change: A Book TalkDate: Apr 25, 2017
Time: 09:00 AM to 10:30 AM
Join the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits as we host author and systems-thinker, David Peter Stroh, in a discussion about social change.
Come prepared to think about the following questions:
- How do complex social systems thwart our best efforts to change them?
- What are the key differences between systems and conventional thinking?
- What simple systems tools can I use to get started?
- How do I employ the principles and tools to lead systemic change?
Author David Peter Stroh will share insights based on his recent book Systems Thinking for Social Change – a #1 Best Seller in Non-Governmental Organization Policy which readers praise as "an essential - and long overdue - guide to applied systems thinking" that "shows you how to enlist others in the effort" by "masterfully weaving metaphor, story, and practical tools" using "down-to-earth language."
