1 Abstract This paper is a result of my assignment task in my MBA program with University of South Wales. The central thesis of this paper is to discuss this sentence: Systems thinking seeks to understand phenomena as a whole formed by the interaction of parts. The objective of this paper is to appraise this sentence with discussions of: What does it mean by Systems, What is Strategy, System Thinking Definitions, System Thinking Approaches, What is complexity, Complex Adaptive Systems and Strategic Thinking. It also gives examples of some human aspects as a complex adaptive system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
