Real world problems, such as those involving the natural environment, people and technology, are difficult to solve. Solutions are often ineffective and commonly have unintended consequences that can make matters worse. These are characteristics of dealing with complex systems and their many interacting components. Complex systems are difficult to predict and control; these problems become much worse when these systems interact - as they do in the real world.
These problems require a robust, flexible, adaptable, system-wide approach for a solution to be successful. The identification of a suitable solution typically needs multiple perspectives with skills drawn from of a wide range of disciplines and domains.
