---About the Idioticon:
The Triarchy idioticon covers some of the terms that we encounter and love or are intrigued by. Some are familiar to Systems and Complexity Thinkers, many have appeared in Triarchy Press books.

All have useful insights for anyone exploring Systems Thinking, the working of organisations, change or simply trying to understand and make sense of the way that people are.
Each reminds us to look out to the wider systems of which we form a part – to see the bigger picture.
Sources are shown for each idea and, if we have published a book in the area, it will be referenced. But this isn't meant to be a bookselling operation so much as an idea-gathering one.
