From systems change to systems changed: Assuming a systems-based approach in response to crisis

Abstract

The existing literature has highlighted the complexities of productivity puzzle in the UK, with the systems lens providing a mean to both explore a more holistic approach as well as examining the intersections and interdependencies of productivity policies and outcomes. As the economic implications of the COVID-19 crisis continue to become apparent this presents an opportunity to reconceptualise how the future of the productivity debate might be reimagined from a systems perspective with a focus on future economic resilience. This chapter explores where and how the manifest points of crisis, and subsequent policy interventions, can serve to focus the attention on specific sub-systems of activity that are sensitive to the ways in which policies and processes are embedded in the wider system. The chapter concludes by identifying and advocating the need for more experimental and adaptive approaches based on evidence and insight emerging in real time.
