Abstract

This article is an appeal to incorporate systems thinking into topics and courses in business education and the social sciences. After reviewing the lack of systems thinking and systems theory in American education, its negative impact on decision making and risk analysis, the authors demonstrate how to weave systems thinking and systems theory into the existing curricula, and how to assess the effectiveness of such pedagogy on the decision making and risk analysis process.
