Hi there. I am 3 weeks away from finishing my BSBA international business at Ohio State. Checked out the presentation. I think it is interesting when you said that a system is a whole, not the parts. In my opinion, it is precisely the analysis of the parts that allows one to understand the whole. As applied to business, the manner in which a system will influence a decision is only relevant to extent to which different aspects of the system are involved in the decision ie cultural, legal, the market etc. I guess my point is that maybe a system is not a coherent whole, but a patchwork of 'sub-systems'...

Good to know about your course.

I think you should think through on "systems thinking".

If you checked my presentation, there is a slide at the end of "emergenc'y'"

This is the nature of systems called the emergent properties. The emergent properties are the ones which are beyond the parts of the system.

For example : Life. Even if yo analyse the heart, the liver, the intestines, the brain etc you cannot determine what "property of life".

More examples in the slide.

The reductionism that you have talked about is one of the reasons of the problems we face today.

The paradigm shift of systems thinking is required for us to make a difference in this world.
