Using systems thinking can have a positive impact on enterprise software strategies. A few tips on how to implement it in the design process.

How designers can use systems thinking to impact enterprise software strategy
  • Using systems thinking can have a dramatic, positive impact on enterprise software strategies.
  • In the software design world, systems thinking is a way to keep the detailed complexities of user flows tucked away so you can understand the mental model of the system as a whole.
  • Systems thinking can be used in many ways depending on the problem to be solved or the point of view you are seeking to support, influence or change.
  • Where to start:
    • The user
    • The general system
    • The visual elements
  • Things that help you understand if you are heading in the right direction:
    • Alignment and Feedback — leverage your findings by recommending how to improve or suggest new solutions, from the users point of view.
    • Awareness — make sure the artifact is presented in a way others can follow along or reference it on their own.
