System Archetypes

   

Definition: System Archetypes is are models that describe patterns of organization that keep recurring. They are helpful to show, explain and gain deeper insights into certain patterns of behavior of a system under observation. We can use them to answer questions like: "Why are we observing some particular problem over time again and again?
System archetypes were studied since 1960s and 1970s by Jay Forrester, Dennis Meadows, Donella Meadows, and others in the nascent field of Systems Thinking.
In his popular 1990 book, "The Fifth Discipline: The Art and Practice of the Learning Organization", Peter Senge coined the term "system archetypes".
