Philippe Beaulieu-B, Francis Clermont, Aaron Jackson, Robert Lummack, Paul Mitchell and Ben Zweibelson contributed to the symposium ‘Breaking Down Silos and Connecting Stakeholders: A Symposium on Systems Thinking and Design’ at the Royal Military College in St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu on April 11-12th, 2017. The Centre for National Security Studies (CNSS) based at Canadian Forces College organized this event.
This Symposium brought together experts and practitioners from Canada and around the world. Through panel discussions and workshops, participants and speakers gathered to discuss and debate key topics related to design and systems thinking.
Panel discussions focused on the status and evolution of design and systems thinking throughout the world, approaches and evolution within the Canadian Armed Forces, as well as applications and the future outside of the military sphere. These panels were reinforced by workshops discussing design and systems thinking applications and impact on operational and institutional planning, the whole-of-government approach and its future. These workshops included all members of the audience to take part in the discussion.
