Systems Practice is the application of a particular way of perceiving and making sense of the world in order to aid understanding. We are concerned with the problem of organisational change that exists when attempting to improve the use of Systems Practice in response to meeting complex design challenges. However, relying on mandate is not sufficient. We reflect on how change needs to originate from practitioners that gain a critical awareness of their own worldview and achieve a crucial shift towards an appreciation of the different epistemological traditions underpinning Systems Practice.
