An Introduction to SysQ is our free interactive resource for building and applying Systemic Intelligence (SysQ). By using this guide, practitioners of systems thinking and adaptive leadership will better understand why systemic intelligence is an essential leadership capacity and how to increase anyone's (or any team’s) ability to apply it. An Introduction to SysQ gives you rapid access to the full suite of systems thinking tools (including the SysQ Questions, trend graphs, archetypes, causal loop and stock & flow diagrams, and simulations) – including when and how to use each! And because the guide is browser based, it works on mobile devices! You can even embed it on your website. We believe you’ll find this resource so useful that you’ll decide it belongs in your browser’s favorite bookmarks! (Currently, it works best on Google applications and devices – Chrome and Android-based devices.)

Nations around the globe are seeing an increase in seemingly intractable polarization. This is generating more extremism, and in some cases, democracy eroding into authoritarianism. Why is this happening? In this learning lab, you'll explore an integrated a theory from Jennifer McCoy about the willingness to engage in bitter debate... with a theory from Cass Sunstein and Reid Hastie about the impact of information bubbles to create extremism. The lab points to at least one potential (though difficult) way to reverse these trends.

Sim App (Sim)

An interface that allows users to interact with a model.

Image of a sim

Sim apps allow users to interact with a model using buttons, sliders, knobs, tables, graphs, and storytelling. These interactions help users understand how parts of a system interact.

Interfaces are created by model authors in the Stella desktop software and can be uploaded to the isee Exchange.

Model

A diagram that represents how elements in a system influence one another.

Image of a model

Models are mathematical representations of how elements in a system are connected and interact (e.g., ecosystems, organizations, supply chains). When running models on the Exchange, results can be viewed in output devices like graphs and tables.

Models appear in the isee Exchange directory when authors upload them from the Stella® desktop software or create them with Stella Online™.

Causal Loop Diagram (CLD)

A map that represents the feedback structure of a system.

CLDs are high-level maps that represents the feedback structure of a system and easily communicate the essence of a model. They appear in the isee Exchange when authors upload them from the Stella desktop software or create them with Stella Online™.
