Meta-perspectives show us how understanding
is developed by considering events to be part of a causal system.
Systemic solutions takes that thinking one step further by appreciating
that predictable control of events must also be part of a system.
This is a vital conclusion. If
events are caused by a system then control of the event needs
to be addressed within that system. For instance understanding
that fires arise where flammable substances are ignited in the
presence of oxygen enables us to both avoid explosions in hazardous
areas, and to develop a space rocket.
Technologists take this understanding
of systemic solutions to create products which 'do exactly what
it says on the tin' predictably, consistently and with very few
errors. By understanding the system, and its causality, and by
combining it with other systems that interact predictably, technologists
are able to guarantee with 99.999999% confidence that even something
as complex as an aeroplane will traverse the next mile of sky
Scientists and technologists also
recognise that the quality of their own work also forms part
of a system (a meta-system) and have developed a set of systematic
disciplines to ensure their own effectiveness.
Systemic solutions are incredibly
stable, both in terms of their day-to-day operation and in terms
of their ability to assimilate future developments. The 'system'
provides a steady platform for considering the opportunities
of all new advancements as they arise, and for ensuring the end
result is effective.
