If you are a manager or someone aspiring to be a manager, at whatever stage you are in your study of systems thinking, this book is designed to help. If you are new to the ideas, then it should serve as a solid introduction. If you are familiar with a few of the ideas, but know little about how they are related or can be used to manage organizations, then the book will give you a more rigorous understanding of holism and how to use systems ideas in practice.

If you understand some systems approaches but not others, then the book will expand your knowledge and enable you to be creative in your choice and use of systems methodologies and methods.

You will also be able to use the book as a guide to further reading about systems thinking.
