Does Senge's View of Systems Thinking Go Far Enough?
In the 5th Discipline Senge outlines his views on systems thinking, when in reality this is only one dimension of the systems thinking concepts.
I have come across many people who have read the 5th Discipline who think they have a good understanding of systems thinking. Now I think Senge’s work has a place at most forums about learning and organisational behavior, but I also think that his success has given many people a slanted view of systems thinking. Much of the work by Beer, Checkland etc etc whilst well known in the inner circles of systems thinking tends to be pushed to one side - or not discussed at all.
What are people's view? Has Senge given the systems thinking world a slanted view on what exactly systems thinking is... And what it's not?
