In ¬Thinking Systems Robin Asby explores Systems
¬Thinking from a process perspective and shows how this perspective generates new insights, particularly into the problems that we face in the stewardship of our planet. It explains how a process-based approach allows us to think
differently and how it can be widely applied.

Part 1 introduces Systems ¬Thinking and the systemic process modelling of learning and managing. This is an up-to-date and accessible introduction for anyone interested in the theory and practice of Systems Thinking.

Part 2 describes the effect of applying Systems Thinking in two key areas where problems of understanding exist: government and Quantum Mechanics. Whilst these two are far apart in the academic world, in each case surprising
insights result from the systemic process approach.
Robin Asby has a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University (1965), and a PhD from London University in 1968 in Mathematical Physics which formulated the basic modelling of a focused laser beam. At the University of Rochester, NY he began research in optics and electrodynamics and later introduced systems thinking into his teaching. He worked as a consultant with Hull University mentoring senior managers internationally as they developed their use of systemic management theories. In 2001 he became an Open University tutor, then contributor to the development of systems thinking courses.
