Along the way, we will draw upon existing theories and discuss strategies to recognize, acknowledge, engage, and bridge across differences in constructive ways.

Systems Thinking

Adequately addressing such challenges requires capabilities to see the larger system, foster reflection to uncover mental models that act as barriers and shift the collective focus towards co-creating the future. Theory U helps leaders in a multi-stakeholder process to shift the nature of institutional relationships to enhance collaboration and develop innovative solutions to persistent challenges. The Systems Thinking: An Application through Theory U Workshops will be structured as an experiential learning opportunity to better address such challenges, whether from the perspective of businesses, government or civil society. It will equip students with systems thinking skills through exposure to the Theory U methodology, case studies, and practical application.
