This course is designed for students to obtain a functional understanding of the system and complexity science that underlie strategic thinking and planning in today's interconnected and dynamic environment. Students who successfully complete this course will attain the following by the end of the course:
1. Practical skills in bounding problem sets and identifying causal relationships and feedback mechanisms to gain insights that directly support strategic thinking.
2. An appreciation of the system dynamics that drive non-linear behavioral outcomes within bounded systems.
3. An historical perspective of the influence of science and technologies on strategic thinking.
4. An understanding of cognitive and judgmental biases that affect strategic thinking.
5. Some methods and processes for advancing collaborative strategic thinking and planning. Strategic thinking skills may be applied across several academic disciplines: Information Sciences, Design thinking, Systems Engineering, Operations Research, Defense Analysis and Homeland Security studies.
