November 14 (the third Monday of the month, dodging Thanksgiving) is the 105th meeting for Systems Thinking Ontario. The registration is at https://finding-leverage.eventbrite.ca .
Finding Leverage: Toward a modern theory of leverage in systemic design
Designing for leverage follows from identifying the most powerful opportunities for innovation in systems change. Leverage theory has a history, particularly with a prominent chapter by Donella Meadows on 'Leverage Points: Places to Intervene in a System'. Amongst the recent developments in designing for leverage, there are some challenges in presumptions and misunderstandings. A modern theory of leverage in systemic design can address these challenges.
Extending a presentation from RSD11 on "Leverage Is Fractal, Relative… And What Else? We need a theory of leverage in systemic design", Ryan Murphy welcomes discussion from Systems Thinking Ontario participants.
Ryan J. A. Murphy is an instructor and doctoral candidate at Memorial University Faculty of Business Administration. He is an alumnus of the master's program in Strategic Foresight & Innovation from OCADU.
