This book will change the way you think about problems. This book discusses systems engineering as a problem-solving approach for tackling complex problems. It focuses on creating solutions to complex problems by taking a problem-solving approach. It discusses systems engineering as a practical approach for tackling all sorts of problems, not only discussing what needs to be done, but also provides guidance and examples of how to do it. The book applies systems thinking to systems engineering and introduces several innovative concepts such as direct and indirect stakeholders and the Nine-System Model which provides the context for the activities performed in the project and provides a framework for successful stake holder management.
