Approaching Wicked Problems with Systems Thinking and Agile Methodology
As a follow-up to our seminar on wicked problems, it is useful to consider the approach to addressing such problems posed in a recent article
suggesting that systems thinking be combined with agile methodology. The combination leads to five tips:
1) break information into nodes and links,
2) visualize the information,
3) be collaborative and include stakeholders,
4) release solutions quickly to gather feedback,
The articles presents cases of wicked problems at Walmart and Rodale Publishing.
How might we apply this approach to problems we are working on in the library and EdLab? How can it be applied to problems we are working on with library patrons?
