What is a system?
The classic definition from W. Edwards Deming is “A system is a network of interdependent components that work together to try to accomplish the aim of the system.” (from The New Economics, 1993)
A working definition applicable in any organization: System: processes working together to achieve a common goal. These processes can be anything from the ones that run in your body – your physiological processes – to the ones that run (or don’t run) in your organization:
- employee development
- sales incentives
- new product development
- integrated operational and accounting systems
