Welcome to the Homepage & Blog of Jürgen Kanz

I hope you will find some interesting information on my website. Please let me know your opinion about some topics or areas of improvement that you have identified.

Why this website and blog?
Active Systemic Thinking fascinates me.
Systemic thinking is the ability to see connections and interrelationships across disciplines, functions, organizations, people, trends, and cultures in ways that lead to insightful analysis and innovative, sustainable solutions.
This approach does help me to get a better understanding of the world as it is.
My intention is to share some of my insights, the tools and other aspects with interested readers via my website and blog.
My personal objectives:
  • To gain a better understanding of the world as it is.
  • To become an intelligent citizen of the world.
  • To develop a clear thinking.
  • Understand data and use it.
  • To decide, to develop strategies and to find solutions to problems in a better way as in the past.
  • Assist other people in overcoming their problems.
