  1. The concepts were discussed in a concise manner regardless of the short amount of time given. Systems thinking is a powerful tool that can be useful in a variety of situations. It is good to know at least the basics for us to have a broader perspective of situations.

  2. This is my first time hearing about systems thinking and I believe that the knowledge I gained from this online course can help me and other analysts in problem solving.

  3. Thankyou for Informative and Helpful Webinars. As an Industrial Engineering student it will help me to gain more knowledge about system thinking

  4. It was a fun and knowledgeable experience especially my program is Industrial Engineering, it relates to my program and thus enhanced my knowledge. The explanation of the speaker (Engr. Edward) is very thorough and very vivid. I would like to express my gratitude to ASK LEX PH ACADEMY for making this event possible and I would like to thank especially Mr. Edward Solicito for sharing and let us gain his knowledge to us.

  5. My take from the seminar was that there is more to the typical iceberg model -the tip of the iceberg as the observable behaviors and/or the typical identifiable causes; and, the larger scale of the iceberg as the underlying beliefs and/or actions. Since there are identified degree of leverages on the iceberg, it would be easier to create countermeasures.
    The seminar was very interactive and informative.
    Thank you for another free leaning experience Ask Lex Academy!
