Title: Aligning Selected Systems Thinking Tools to Mitigate Key Challenges Encountered During the Initial Stage of Organizational Change
Author: Fallenstein, Meghan
Abstract: This paper examines the potential for systems thinking tools to provide ways for organizational leaders (Senge, 1999) to address challenges within the organizational change process. Literature published after 1990 is reviewed concerning challenges encountered in the initiating phase of organizational change (Senge, 1999) and selected systems thinking tools: Causal Loop Diagram, Behavior Over Time graph ("Basic" 2004), The Iceberg (Kim, 1999), and Action-to-Outcome (Jones and Seville, 2003). Conclusions are presented for organizational change leaders.
Description: This paper was completed as part of the final research component in the University of Oregon Applied Information Management Master's Degree Program [see htpp://aim.uoregon.edu].
