This paper takes a systems thinking perspective that is necessary for understanding the dynamically complex challenges that face our organizations, our community, and our society.

A systems thinking perspective is non-traditional, but absolutely vital if we are to successfully address issues related to workforce and economic development. Our society is in trouble; we need this.

Some of the views expressed here are counter to accepted beliefs. I do my best to explain my reasoning. That said, new data and influences that I've overlooked can change the views expressed here.
