Presentation Title: Simple_Complexity

"Every business owner or manager I have ever met acknowledges that their business is a system, yet almost none have studied systems, systems thinking, systems dynamics or systems engineering," says Donaldson.  

Dr. Donalson will discuss the principles in his book, Simple_Complexity: A Management Book for the Rest of Us: A Guide to Systems Thinking to "give owners, managers and students an introduction to systems thinking and a vision of their enterprise as a system."

Dr. William "Willy" Donaldson, PhD
