Read the following article: Seeing Your Company as a System
How did Clark’s save the company by using systems thinking. Identify three to five major concepts of system thinking and then explain how when applied they worked for Clark’s and its competitors. Evaluate the company’s success and explain why you think this approach was a better fit than the more conventional theories discussed in the last weeks. If you disagree that it was a better fit explain why. How could Clark’s have used design thinking to accomplish the same goals?
Learning Activity 2-
Theme 2 When we started the class we learned that the 21st-century manager must be agile to survive the fluid and dynamic business environment of this century.

Reflect on the classwork and then address your comments to the articles this week on agile managers to debate this question: Agile management is not the answer to creating a facile and competitive business organization. Make sure that you respond to both activities separately. Also, make sure that you include in-text citations and references for both activities. Also make sure that you read and include in-text-citations and references from the resources that I provided in the file below, please. Thank you
