Living Systems Thinking
This is a focus page to accumulate references from various Living Systems Thinking discussions, many of which are ongoing within LinkedIn. The page was initiated when the Living Systems Thinking subgroup of the Systems Thinking World group was deleted. The intent was to be able to surface the content of the discussions to external search, which can not be done with LinkedIn subgroups. The initial discussion within the Systems Thinking World is at Living Systems Thinking.
