Systems thinking practitioner

Support decision makers in strategic and leadership roles

This role is designed to solve complex problems that cannot be addressed by any one organisation or person, but which require cross-boundary collaboration within and between organisations. Its broad purpose is to support decision makers in strategic and leadership roles to understand and address complex and sometimes even ‘wicked’ problems through provision of expert systemic analysis, advice and facilitation. Examples include: providing joined-up health and social services, reducing plastics use in the bottled drinks industry, developing sustainable international food production and supply systems, developing combined diplomatic and military options for unstable regions, and addressing climate change. In this role, you’ll interact with decision makers, strategists and policy makers, and develop a skill set that includes collaborative enquiry and analysis using systemic models, tools and ways of working, gathering and synthesising of diverse evidence types, development of options for intervention and investment, facilitation of dialogue, and empathetic navigation of power dynamics and politics.
