Abstract

Using the method of the systematic review, this study examined how systems thinking theory has been applied within organizational management. This research revealed that the use of a unifying model that incorporates both soft systems thinking and critical systems thinking can enrich the stages of the application process (i.e. the data collection, data analysis and evaluation), and offers a meticulous process that helps the individuals and organizations plan and implement their decisions successfully. It was found that the participation of the individuals (both practitioners and researchers) during this process can improve the outcome.
