Making Sense of Systems—and Using Systems to Make Sense of the Enterprise

In this talk, Boon will share learnings from understanding systems thinking at a deeper level, and how this has shaped and improved his approaches to large, messy problem spaces as an senior individual contributor working on product / service design and strategy in the enterprise.

Boon’s perspectives on systems draw from a mix of systems perspectives, which include Checkland’s soft-systems methodology, Capra’s systems view of life, and Ricigliano’s Systems Practice approaches. He’ll also share some of the practicalities and challenges of learning and applying systems thinking (which hasn’t been simple), while having to deliver on UX outcomes at the same time.
