According to Meadows (2008), “A system is more than thesum of its parts. It may exhibit adaptive, dynamic, goal-seeking, self-preserving, and sometimesevolutionary behavior” (p.11).The interconnections and relationships that hold the companytogether begin with system thinking.Bottlenecks are a necessity for production success but how they are managed is important fora successful organization.The slowest aspect of an operation which cause all other aspects of abusiness operation to slow down during a work overload is the main understanding I have abottleneck.Bottlenecks cause inefficiency in business (King, 2011).The bottleneck effectoccurs when there is an adversity that diminishes many to a few, leading to disparity.
INDIVIDUAL REFLECTION3Constrain management is essential to keep proper organizational flow.Constraints can comefrom an outside or inside source and can have a major impact on organizational flow.Themanagement and understanding of constrains give the organization the ability to solve problemsutilizing system thinking, which is important since treating constrain will affect the entire systeminstead of various parts of the system.The majority of the course contents and assignment helped me to understand the importanceof fostering a culture of system thinking as an enhancement to organizational performance.
