Getting Ready for Design

  • Bela H. Banathy
Part of the Contemporary Systems Thinking book series (CST)


As you worked with the first four chapters, you developed an understanding of what social systems design is, why it is important for us today to be able to engage in design, and how systems design works. In the last chapter we went beyond the technical and contextual dimensions of systems design and explored the various human-experiential dimensions that have relevance to design. Furthermore, working with the activities, you constructed your own meaning of design and applied what you learned in functional contexts of your interest.
