Cube31 – The Art of Understanding

Change is appealing. We all want the world, either our small section or the a large group or organization, to be better. Causing change either in an individual or a group can be one of the most difficult objectives a person can undertake.

 

This cube features a section about mental models from Peter Senge‘s book The Fifth Discipline. A wonderful book dealing with Systems Theory or Systems Thinking and why many of the issues in our world are due to something other than the distant evil boogie man.
