  6. 6. We speak of “systems” to help understand change Systems change when their pattern-defining conditions (similarities, differences, and connections) change or when the dialogue about those pattern- defining conditions change
  7. 7. The words and narratives matter Systems narratives are about: resonance (self identity) consonance (cohesion with context) coherence and viability
  8. 8. To take a systems perspective is to choose WHAT MODEL MATTERS WHAT ELEMENTS MATTER WHAT CONTEXT MATTERS WHAT SIMPLIFICATIONS MATTER
  9. 9. The future of systems perspectives Depend on explicitly recognizing the role of choice, the contingency of attention and ascription, the power of context, and the possibility of error
  10. 10. To speak of systems is to speak in a framework – one that others might not share
  11. 11. Systems Perspectives are another tool to resolve Ambiguity 11
