Systems Thinking

Date & Time

Wednesday, Oct 4th, 2017

6:30 PM – 8:30 PM


Harvard Kennedy School

This workshop will help social innovators to learn the skills of systems thinking: a process or procedure that helps guide people to discover and understand the initiating causes of a problem, with the goal of determining missing or inadequately applied controls that will prevent recurrence. This session builds on the skills introduced in Part I: Problem Formulation and is led by Jason Jay, Faculty Affiliate of the Social Innovation and Change Initiative and Senior Lecturer in Sustainability at MIT Sloan School of Management.

Space for this workshop is limited and will be determined by application. Students should reflect on how these tools and frameworks will help you in advancing your work and thinking.

Applications are due by 5PM on Thursday, September 28 (click to apply). You will be notified of your status by EOB, Friday, September 29.
