Drive transformative change by first understanding how to apply systems thinking to unpack complex problems.
In Using Systems Think to Unpack Problems, you’ll learn how to apply systems thinking in a practical way to understand the problem and reveal the social, economic and environmental factors that may contribute to it. With these insights, you will be able to make better decisions about where to intervene and know which behaviours to target.
Bring your own problem to apply a systems approach: To get the most out of your course, we encourage participants to bring their own problem to apply a systems approach. This could be a problem you are currently facing at work or in a personal project.
This course is for you if you are a problem solver looking to enhance your analytical skills to tackle complex issues with a holistic perspective.
Whether you are a business professional seeking to optimise organisational processes, a policymaker aiming to address societal challenges, or an aspiring innovator seeking to develop impactful solutions, this course will equip you with the tools and frameworks needed to navigate intricate problems effectively.
*Plus 11 hours of self-paced learning between workshops.
This course is delivered to Monash University’s quality standards by our team of applied behavioural scientists.

For behaviour change programs to be successful, we need everyone to be on the same page. One of the tactics we use to achieve this is by showing how problems emerge from systems.
By examining the interconnections and/or influences between networks, processes, policies and organisations, we are better able to identify some of the challenges (i.e., silos, competing agendas, organisational cultures) that may be playing a role.
Systems mapping helps us identify the range of influences contributing to the problem to reveal parts of the system where behaviour change can have the biggest impact – ideally for the least effort.
