Systems flashcards development

Mike Haber
19 October 2015

Mike has had a recent introduction to formal systems thinking, backed up by a history of being an systemic-ish internal change agent in educational IT organisations. Having recently completed a year of study with the Open University he's still aware of the journey that people starting learning about systems face, and hopes to use this understanding to help provide some signposts.

The systems cards have many purposes, from providing a quick reminder of key ideas before important meetings, helping learn the landscape of new areas of systems to being shared to help bring ideas to group discussions. The cards will be a free/Creative Commons resource, customisable for practitioners.


This will be an interactive session to discuss the potential uses, scope and content of a set of cards. Mike is SCiO's onlie director, and has been working on the cards with Dr Niki Jobson, a non-exec director of SCiO.
