We welcome back the informative and entertaining Thomas Baker MSOE MIPlantE for more fascinating discussion about how the latest innovations and big picture ideas can be applied to your business. In this presention Thomas turns our attention to ‘systems thinking’ and explores how this approach might be applied in Engineering Operations Management. We will look at why it's so difficult to solve some problems and why initiatives often fail or don't achieve their anticipated results. Crucially, we will consider why it is often so difficult for managers to achieve their goals.
The objective of the session is to equip attendees to:
- understand the foundations of systems thinking
- view engineering organisations from a systems perspective
- to evaluate management decisions from a systems thinking point of view.
This session will be aimed for managers and supervisors or anyone aspiring to hold these positions.
This webinar is open to members and non-members
