Training to The Royal Society on Systems Thinking and Decision-Making

The Schumacher Institute’s Martin Sandbrook and Douglas Owen were recently invited by The Royal Society to deliver a training course designed to help policy advisors get a fresh perspective on systems, so they can make more effective recommendations. We brought together systems thinking and the psychology of decision-making to provide a 1-day introduction to new ways of thinking about systems, informed by the science of how people make choices in the real world, and how they deal with uncertainty and the perception of risk.

The remarkable history of scientific achievement of The Royal Society provided an inspiring backdrop, and we were delighted to have this opportunity to share our knowledge.

Please get in touch with us if you think the people in your organisation would also benefit from a fresh perspective from systems thinking and how people make decisions in the complex world within which we all work.
