One of the things I discovered while reading Peter Senge’s “The Fifth Discipline” is that it was giving me words that I had not had before. This was beautifully described on page 158 when Peter wrote:

Einstein…could also take brilliant intuitions and convert them into succinct, rationally testable propositions. As managers gain facility with systems thinking as an alternative language, they find that many of their intuitions become explicable. Eventually, reintegrating reason and intuition may prove to be one of the primary contributions of systems thinking.

I’m finding this true in my experience. The more I’m learning about systems thinking, the more I have language to communicate my intuition.

And you? What do you think?
