If you&#039;re interested in learning more about the insight made possible through understanding how systems work, why not join us for an evening Systems Caf&eacute; event to learn about systems thinking and try applying it to some of the news topics of the day or your own management issues?<br> <br> This Systems Caf&eacute; is organised by SCiO. SCiO is a community of systems practitioners who believe that traditional approaches to running organisations are responsible for many of the problems we see today. We believe that systems approaches to designing and running organisations offer radically new and better alternatives. We have run quarterly Open Meetings (mini-conferences) and Development Days for some years. Systems Caf&eacute;s are a new initiative to help support Systems Practitioners and others interested in learning about Systems approaches and practice.

One is not intrinsically better then the other - they serve different purposes. But we have a strong tendency to enter into debate and even argument when we should be doing is having a dialogue.
