ISAT477 Complex systems and how they fail. It is truly an inter-disciplinary course that has proven to be of interest and value to a variety of students across all colleges of the university.  In fact, the most exciting and fruitful semesters have been those when I had a wide variety of majors and career interests in the room.  Because of the broad areas we explore – systems thinking, formal organizations, decision-making, risk, communication, innovation, public policy, leadership – and the case study settings we analyze – hospitals, municipal governments, airlines, emergency services, military units, energy companies, educational systems – students from sociology to management, psychology to intelligence analysis, geography to health sciences have benefitted from the course.
