ABACC Members are grappling with the challenge of delivering higher education in ways that are both affordable and sustainable, and that meet the needs of both traditional and non- raditional learners. Doing so requires redirecting scarce dollars to their core missions of teaching, service and research through innovative ideas.  This webinar will focus on “system thinking,” a holistic approach to analysis focusing on the way a system's constituent parts interrelate and how systems work over time and within the context of larger systems. According to systems thinking, system behavior results from the effects of reinforcing and balancing processes. This approach to problem solving is quite different from the fragmented, “siloed” approach typically used in Higher Education.

Learning Objectives: Attendees will be able to:

Describe the difference between traditional silo management and systems thinking as well as apply systems thinking to their institution’s major problems; and
Create a system map for specific problem areas requiring improvement.

Presented By:

Joe Garcia, President, Mindstream
