System design pulls together the best of system thinking, commercial power and human processes that drive and shape food and Ag systems. It helps prevent group think that is only accessing explicit knowledge.   Agnetic designs food and Ag systems that minimize the temptation too act to early.
This discipline, prevents taking tempting, age-old shortcuts. Shortcuts that predictably only end up generating an ongoing cascade of additional constraints, which in turn generate a cascade of counter shortcuts that in-turn generate a bloom of Financial, Logistical, Analytical, Biological and Social waste.
Agnetic has designed a food and Ag logic model based on nature-based symbiotic power, named The New Ag Playbook. The Playbook brings needed tacit knowledge to the table. Its integrated components help humans overcome their naturally given ‘either/or’ and ‘compartmentalized-thinking’ by offering Better Starting Points™. These next step actions come with minimal risks and are continually verified through a check-and-balances process called the OODA Loop8
. The OODA loop process builds business agility and commercial power; two core elements in any sustainable system. The New Ag Playbook presents how multiple loops can be executed simultaneously, in symbiotic fashion, including discovery, confirming and scaling loops for multiple business model development projects.
