Effective Joint leaders think, act, and influence stakeholders in ways that promote an organization’s sustainable advantage. Strategic foresight enables leaders to frame key issues affecting an organization, integrating hindsight, insight, and foresight to envision possible and preferred outcomes. Developing an understanding that leads to successful outcomes in a 21st Century multi-cultural world requires leaders to leverage systems thinking, system dynamics, trends analysis and futuring, social change theory, anticipatory management practices, and strategic design.Although there is not an agreed upon approach to correctly model a system, this guide offers one way to do so. In the end, any model is incomplete and thus inaccurate, but the effort to build it, the discourse involved in developing a shared understanding, and the multiple perspectives considered during its creation adds a depth and breadth of understanding that would be missed if not undertaken. This guide provides a step-by-step approach to developing a broader and deeper understanding of an issue as it affects policy, strategy, process, or an organization. The outcome(s) generated by working through the exercises in this guide can be used to make adjustments to an existing system or to create an entirely new one if necessary.
