Abstract

Who is the coach? The coach is the guy running up and down at the side of the football field trying to extort the win from the team without ever hitting the ball. So what (s)he does? The coach teaches her/his client. The coach deals with the processes and tries to teach her/his client by helping looking behind the processes. To be able to explain this properly, we need to revisit the very basis of system thinking. In this paper we will discuss and somewhat rearrange the layers of systems to reformulate how we see systems to finally make the role of the systemist clear.
