Systems theory differentiates organization development from management consulting. Every organization, business or public sector agency, no matter how large or how small, is a system. Organizational problems are linked together and change in one area often impacts other areas of the whole system. Therefore, we pay close attention to the integration of actions in order to achieve the most positive results for the entire organization. Discovering the links and how they fit together and, therefore, what steps the organization can take to improve the situation is the basis of systems theory.
