The Macroscope by Joël de Rosnay : a book about #systemsthinking

May 18th, 2011 Posted in Systems Thinking Tags: , , ,

The Macroscope, written by Joël de Rosnay is a high level introduction to Systems Thinking. It can be read in english on the Principia Cybernetica web site in HTML version.

As this was not convenient for me, I copied everything in Word and then converted it to PDF for better offline reading (should work in any ebook reader). Here is the link to the file: The Macroscope by Joël de Rosnay.

 

#Video About The #Book “Fry The Monkeys Create A Solution” (#Solutionfocus)

March 16th, 2011 Posted in Solution Focus Tags: , , ,

For those that like videos, here is a 6 minutes video about a very recent book regarding Solution Focus: About The Book “Fry The Monkeys Create A Solution“.

The video is a light introduction to the world of Solution Focus and answers the most common questions about it (whether it is about problem phobia for instance).

I have not read it (yet?). What I did read is “Solutions Focus: Making Coaching and Change S.I.M.P.L.E.” which is a great book targeted to a wide range of audiences, from consultants to managers and coaches in differing contexts (individual to small teams to bigger systems, though it is acknowledged that Appreciative Inquiry may be more suited for that purpose). The S.I.M.P.L.E. principles at the heart of Solution Focus are explained as well as the easy tools and the OSKAR coaching framework that can be used for, well, coaching using SF.
