One of the keys to to being effective is to understand the complexity of your organization, what it seeks to achieve, and how you can contribute to that objective. Through a series of exercises, you can gain clarity about these elements. With an integrated understanding of what values drive the system’s behavior, how the parts of the system function, and how the values and parts relate, you will be much clearer in how your day-to-day actions will help you achieve the desired results for your area and organization.
