Course Description

This course is the second part in the Systems Thinking ExpertTrack. It builds on the theory and covers the most practical aspects of Symbiosis in Development, (SiD), the first framework for integrated sustainable growth. You will develop the analytical skills as well as practical tools necessary to solve any complicated societal problem you might be facing.

This course will equip you with the skills to conduct all-encompassing system analyses. It will also provide you with a structured approach for initiating, facilitating, and accelerating sustainability transitions.

Anyone involved in system thinking can benefit from the SiD framework. It provides an integrated framework for development that allows us to view complex systems holistically and gain new insights.

The SiD Method is a 5-step process that is based in iterative design thinking. Learn how to do multiple iterations and create a blueprint for design, rollout, and maintenance for your projects.

The integrated framework of SiD will enable you to understand the system and the challenges you face, to set achievable and practical goals, and to drive sustainable change.
