piensamiento sistémico
Explanation:
""Very basically, systems thinking is a way of helping a person to view the world, including its organizations, from a broad perspective that includes structures, patterns and events, rather than just the events themselves. This broad view helps one to identify the real causes of issues and know where to work to address them. There are certain principles of systems thinking that guide one to see this broad view. There is also an increasing amount of information and tools in this regard. Systems thinking is the basis for the approach to developing the learning organization. Peter Senge's book, The Fifth Discipline (Doubleday, 1990), and its companion, The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook (Doubleday, 1994), are seminal works about systems thinking and its application to organizations. Senge identifies five "component technologies" that are the basis for building learning organizations (and systems thinking in individuals). The following links are organized according to the five disciplines, e.g., Personal Mastery, Mental Models, etc.""

This info would indicate that this is a theory with a well-established ideology, hence there must exist an 'official' translation.

Management Science (MS) often takes an analytical view of a decision before making a decision. That is, reflections before action, as a Chinese proverb says, "To chop a tree quickly, spend twice the time sharpening the ax." Carpenters say, "Measure twice, cut once." This analytical approach is known by several different names: Operations Research (a US-ism), Operational Research (a UK-ism), Decision Sciences, Systems Science, Mathematical Modeling, Industrial Engineering, Critical ***Systems Thinking***, and Systems Analysis and Design. Analytical methods are applied to planning and management problems in areas such as production and operations, inventory management, and scheduling. Techniques, often using powerful computer programs, are available to solve problems ranging from real-time control of specific business, industrial, agricultural, and administrative operations to long-term planning models for corporations and public sector agencies.

La Ciencia de la Administración (CA) por lo general visualiza analíticamente una decisión antes de su adopción. Es decir, reflexionar antes de actuar, como dice un proverbio chino, "Para talar rápido un árbol, dedique el doble de tiempo a afilar el hacha." Los carpinteros dicen, "Mida dos veces, corte una." Este abordaje analítico se conoce con diferentes nombres: Investigación Operaciones, (EE.UU), Investigación Operacional (Reino Unido), Ciencias de la Decisión, Ciencia de Sistemas, Modeladización Matemática, Ingeniería Industrial, ***Pensamiento de Sistemas*** Críticos (visite Systems Thinking)***y Análisis y Diseño de Sistemas. Los métodos analíticos se aplican a los problemas de planificación y administración, en áreas tales como producción y operaciones, administración de existencias y scheduling (planificación de turnos de trabajo). Hay técnicas disponibles-que por lo general utilizan programas informáticos poderosos-para resolver problemas que van desde el control en tiempo real de operaciones comerciales, industriales, agrícolas y administrativas específicas hasta los modelos de planificación a largo plazo para las corporaciones y los organismos del sector público
