Shifting the Burden Archetype Poster



Systems archetypes are multi-loop, causal loop diagrams that represent behavior seen commonly in complex systems. They can be lenses through which to view systems more clearly. In the Shifting the Burden archetype, when a symptomatic solution is applied to a problem, it alleviates the symptom, reduces pressure to implement a fundamental solution, has a side effect that undermines the ability to develop a fundamental solution, and eventually leads to an increase in the original problem.


The full-color posters are professionally printed on cardstock and laminated, with metal grommets for easy hanging.  The poster dimensions are 24 x 36 inches.
