Systems Thinking: getting along with complexity

In modern times, both signal and noise overwhelms us—pandemic, wars, climate change, yet another platform redesign—complexity has finally caught up, and we've no choice but to deal with it.

But where do we begin with complexity when there's so much to think of? A systems view might help us unravel the mess, connect the right dots, and eventually getting along with the change. 

That's what this talk is about - a peek into the world of systems thinking, and what it can teach us about embracing and navigating overwhelming things.
