The term systems thinking is a broad description for the process of understanding complex systems behavior. In the context of the STEEP project, systems thinking has been applied to the issue of education and equity.
Systems thinking is based on the idea that the component parts of a system can best be understood in the context of relationships with each other and with other systems, rather than in isolation. A systems thinking approach is grounded in the principle that the only way to fully understand a problematic situation is to understand the parts in relation to the whole.
