Thinking systemically and strategically means moving beyond a focus on the individual to understand the larger organizational and environmental systems and how the dynamics of those systems impact work performance and the readiness for change. This section will explain how certain problems recur and are often made worse by quick solutions; how one decision can impact many people and set in motion a situation that can create numerous unexpected outcomes for the organization; and how to decide where best to begin fostering change-with individuals, groups, departments, the organization (policies, practices, culture, etc.), or the external market/community relationship.
