A Cure for Short-sightedness: Using Systems Thinking to Improve Finance

Tuesday 15 February 2022 08:30 - 10:00

Part of the 'Finance in the Public Interest 2022' webinar series

If it was ever okay to consider your business in isolation from its surroundings, today it most definitely is not. Thinking about business within its surrounding system is now a necessity.  Products and our businesses need to be considered within their expanding systems – starting from our business in isolation, our business and customers, within their value chain, within the financial system, within its social system and technological environment  – in order to increase their value and resilience and to ensure they are fulfilling their purpose. 

The question we seek to discuss is: How should we prescribe the boundaries in which we consider problems to enable us to create better products and more resilient companies and systems?
