Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Why Systems Thinking is Not the Answer

« The New Conversation | Main | Everybody Talks About it. »



Sonnie here, from Manila, HR Generalist. I first thought the post is about systemic thinking in contrast with linear.

However, I agree with your observation that organizations are cutting expenses on people. I hope companies will re discover the value of the human capital. Human development goes hand in hand with proper technological advancement.


Thank you for the feedback. This was one of those posts I put out there to learn from what other people see and think.

Although I studied at a prestigious university, I never felt smarter because of it. In Italy, at the time I lived there, the name of the school had relative importance. Things might be different now.

What a nice post! As someone with degrees from both a state university and an elite university, I know first-hand the dangers that people from the latter place on their own "smarts." As you say, there are many other factors that go into being successful.
