A system is a set whose elements affect the whole of which they are part (example: in the human body, if something goes wrong with the heart, this affects the rest of the body).

These elements do not act by themselves, they act in harmony with each other; Are interdependent.

In systems, elements cannot form subgroups. Each element is involved in the activities of the other (example: no matter how well a heart beats, it cannot do it alone). If an item leaves the system, it loses something. At the same time, each system has a potential that none of its parts has.

In systems, the whole is larger than its parts. If a system is dismantled it loses its essential characteristics; A system cannot be understood by decomposing its parts, studying them, and trying to acquire a vision of the whole. Therefore, systemic thinking is necessary to really understand a whole; i.e to analyze and intervene directly from the whole, and not only from each of its parts.
