There is nothing more practical than good theory
In June 2016, the World Economic Forum issued a document called "Systems Leadership and Platform Engagement Opportunities". The document was written to promote our aspiration to use a systemic approach while working to close the many gaps that exist in global systems today from trade to long-term investment, from healthcare to food security, or from energy to natural resource security and the environment. After my training on systems practice by the Omidyar Network, I will be attempting to merge the Forum's aspiration with the mindsets, processes and tools that I learned. What follows is an initial reflection on trade supported by its corresponding systems map.
