Amplify your success with lessons from Systems Thinking

“Vision without systems thinking ends up painting lovely pictures of the future,” reflected MIT Sloan Lecturer, Peter M Senge. “It leaves no deep understanding of the forces that must be mastered to move from here to there.”

Never has this quote been more applicable in the world of business than in the business of sport. In the highly-emotive world of sport creating a vision is the easy bit. However, executing on this vision is where a lot of organisations both sporting and otherwise tend to fall short, oftentimes because they lack a logical, systematic approach that aligns the entire organisation.

In this podcast CEO and Founder of Kitman Labs, Stephen Smith interview US Head of Performance Darcy Norman about the process of systems thinking and how data can support it's successful framework. From this interview you will take away:

  • An awareness of what is systems thinking and how it can support a sporting organisation

  • A sense of where to begin on your own journey using systems thinking

  • The important role that data plays in building this framework 

  • The importance of using objective data to justify new rationales and remove previous barriers created by heuristics and biases that are ever present in sport

  • An understanding of what is the end goal and what does that look like
