The Society publishes a number of books by Jay Forrester and other luminaries in the field.  These include Urban Dynamics and World Dynamics among many others.


Systems thinking has a rich tradition of using play to impart learning.  The Society offers two quintessential games.  The Beer Game introduces players to fundamental concepts of systems as they play their part in a production and distribution system.  Fish Banks allows players to explore the systems that determine sustainability.  Both are favorites of trainers around the world.


These books and products are all related to sustainability and/or the environment.  Many of them use a systems thinking lens, while others incorporate System Dynamics and simulation modeling.


David Hutchen’s learning fables are a simple, ingenious, and entertaining way to help demystify the 5 disciplines Peter Senge discusses in his book The Fifth Discipline: systems thinking, personal mastery,  mental models, shared vision, and team learning. These books are particularly useful for organizational learning.

Children’s books are aimed at children, young adults, and educators to introduce concepts of systems thinking in a fun way through storytelling and fieldbooks with concrete strategies.
