The framework for Strategic Systemic Thinking (SST) provides a method for investigating an organisations perceptions, goals and identifying missing resources and posing possible solutions using the groups own understanding of the problem area, using both individual and group participation. Users may be assisted in the contextually relevant application of techniques such as brainstorming and rich pictures as useful 'methods' for organisational analysis. It supports adaptation of methods to focus upon contextually dependant problems. To be able to accommodate the contextualisation process, the analytical activities themselves are co-operated upon by a combination of external analyst, internal analyst and 'clients'. The main parts of the SST framework are analysis A, with individual focus, analysis B with organisational focus and evaluation C, focusing on assessment of conclusions. The research team has started the implementation of the SST framework in a department with approx 25 staff members.
