Personality and cognitive ability as predictors of effective performance at work. Science systems thinking is increasingly being used to tackle a wide variety of subjects in fields such as computing, engineering, epidemiology, information science, health, manufacture, management, and the environment. Systems thinking is the process of understanding how things influence one another within a whole. In nature, systems thinking examples include ecosystems in which various elements such as air, water, movement, plants, and animals work together to survive or perish.

In organizations, systems consist of people, structures, and processes that work together to make an organization healthy or unhealthy. The concept of a system Science systems thinkers consider that: a system is a dynamic and complex whole, interacting as a structured functional unit; energy, material and information flow among the different elements that compose the system; a system is a community situated within an environment; energy, material and information flow from and to the surrounding environment via semi-permeable membranes or boundaries; systems are often composed of entities seeking equilibrium but can exhibit oscillating, chaotic, or exponential behavior.
Useful for problems that can justifiably be quantified. However it cannot easily take into account unquantifiable variables opinions, culture, politics, etc , and may treat people as being passive, rather than having complex motivations. Soft systems — For systems that cannot easily be quantified, especially those involving people holding multiple and conflicting frames of reference. Useful for understanding motivations, viewpoints, and interactions and addressing qualitative as well as quantitative dimensions of problem situations.
Soft systems are a field that utilizes foundation methodological work developed by Peter Checkland , Brian Wilson and their colleagues at Lancaster University.

Morphological analysis is a complementary method for structuring and analysing non-quantifiable problem complexes. This technique integrates critical systems inquiry with soft systems methodologies. Evolutionary systems, similar to dynamic systems are understood as open, complex systems, but with the capacity to evolve over time.
