The International Systems Institute (ISI). ISI is a community of scholars, practitioners, consultants, change professionals, and institutions exploring the question of how individuals, organizations, communities, and societies can collaboratively create their futures through a relatively new kind of inquiry and way of life called participatory social systems design.
ISI’s purposes and objectives are carried out through self-organizing research teams that discuss a variety of topics pertaining to how systems thinking can be applied to changing organizations, families, and societies. The collaborations are conducted year-round through a series of virtual and face-to-face conferences where scholars and practitioners engage in dialogue about their own situations and share approaches and findings with others.
International Systems Institute is a member of the International Federation for Systems Research.
