The Systems Community of Inquiry is an open, worldwide network of individuals interested in systems thinking, the systems sciences and/or systems practice.
Inquiry is “an activity which produces knowledge” (Churchman, 1971). We’re more than a community of interest, but less than a community of practice (Wenger, 1999). Our interactions as a community will (i) foster interactions contributing knowledge and wisdom to the online world, and (ii) cultivate social relationships between systemicists.
Contributions from participants are visible on the open Internet.
This web site was founded in spring 2010 in a collaboration including:
The occasion that brought us together was the Russell Ackoff Memorial Celebration in February 2009.
