April 8 (the second Monday of the month) is the 66th meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario. The registration is on Eventbrite.

Systemic Design Toolkit

At the Relating Systems and Design 7 conference in October 2017 at Turin, Italy, the Systemic Design Toolkit was introduced.

  • A few years ago, the need of tackling increasingly complex projects pushed Namahn and shiftN to collaborate on a Systemic Design toolkit. At the RSD5 symposium in Toronto (2016), the two partners presented the first version of the toolkit and assessed its fit for purpose during the conference workshop.
  • Since then, the original authors have collaborated with Peter Jones (Systemic Design Association) and Alex Ryan (MaRS Discovery District) for continued development of the toolkit towards a mature version, ready for use.

At the end of March, Peter Jones will be presenting on the toolkit at Systems Innovation 2019 in Barcelona. For the April Systems Thinking Ontario, He will expand on that content, and also debrief on the Barcelona meeting as a whole
