Systems Theories and Complex Adaptive Systems |

Upon completion of this first of three parts to your Integrative Paper, you will have laid the foundation of systems theories and models that you will apply to a problem or innovation opportunity at a health care organization of your choosing. 


Read the Integrative Paper Guidelines to prepare you for this set of three assignments during this course.


Choose 2 topics from the list of systems theories and conceptual models below:

  • – General systems theory
  • – Chaos theory
  • – Complexity theory
  • – Learning organization theory
  • – Systems model of change
  • – Viable systems model


Write a  900 -1,050 word paper in which you do the following:

  • Describe each of the 2 selected theories/models including an overview and details in the form of key elements and relationships between the elements. Visual depictions are encouraged.
  • Compare and contrast the 2 selected theories/models. Consider the following:
  •  -What phenomenon or phenomena is the theory or model addressing?
  • – How are the elements of each theory/model similar? How do they differ?
  • – Where do the theories/models complement one another in explaining organizations as systems?
  • – Explain what complex adaptive systems (CAS) thinking is and how the 2 theories/models inform or support CAS. A visual depiction of CAS is encouraged.


Note: This paper will become the “Breadth” section of your final integrative paper.


Support your descriptions and analysis with references to 5 credible sources.


Format your paper according to APA guidelines intext citations and a reference page.
