Great piece, John. It is always a contextual thing when dynamics come into play and interweaving forces.

A few years back I wrote a piece on the relevance of context (which often is forgotten) Great piece, John. It is always a contextual thing when dynamics come into play and interweaving forces.

What really triggered me to see that larger scope, and always being on the lookout for "leverage points" is a personal meeting with Jay W. Forrester some years ago while I was still working at BMW in their newest plant back then. As the production was scaled up, and complexity increased accordingly, systems thinking and finally system dynamics became my guiding compass for effective change.

Donella Meadows' "Leverage Points - Where to Intervene in a System" offers a great overview of where to look for to do the "moves smartly made" http://donellameadows.org/archives/leverage-points-places-to-intervene-in-a-system/

Cheers, Ralf
