The Grammar of Systems
Patrick talks about his new book ‘The Grammar of Systems’ which is in two parts:
- the ‘Grammar’ describing 33 Systems Laws and Principles and how to use them; and
- ‘How to think like a Systems Thinker’ which goes through 9 thought patterns involved in systems thinking.
In the session he looks at the overall picture that the laws make when taken as a whole and then focuses on the 9 thought patterns, why each is important in systems, how they relate to one another and how they are different to conventional thinking.
