Summary Systemic Science (systems thinking) provides a structured approach to better conceptualise and operationalise problems and to deal with complexity, uncertainty and risk. Systemic Science is different from traditional forms of scientific investigation because it focuses on 'the whole' rather than the component parts.

Systemic science is a skill that DPI generally lacks, although certain sections of the organisation do employ its principles with success. The objective of this project was to enhance DPI's existing systems thinking capability, with particular emphasis on FFSR, to develop the skills in more staff across the organisation, and to showcase the merits of the approach by applying the concepts on existing/planned projects. This report details ‘Phase 2’ (year 2) of the project and as such, outputs from the separate ‘Phase 1’ are not reported here.
