Systems Thinking applied to broader organisational challenges to assure, improve and change.
Most businesses underuse technical approaches that could make their enterprise work better. Our systematic, end-to-end approach to tackling complexity provides a highly successful organisational management methodology. It can be applied in any organisation dealing with multi-faceted structure, delivery or technological requirements. It produces good solutions for real, complex problems.
At Optima, we are often commissioned for systems engineering tasks but become involved in broader issues due to our insistence on seeing the bigger picture.
Our Systems Thinking approach to your organisation is rigorous, focussed on the pragmatic, real-world need to reduce risk and become more resilient.
Systems Thinkers are able to scope a situation fully and accurately because they recognise that the world is not simple and is highly connected.
A Systems approach to managing interface risk
Failure in a complex process almost always happens at the interfaces between one department, person or set of processes, and the next.

- Keep activity and expenditure focussed on strategic goals by ensuring that all tasks are seen within a wider context
