Principles and Nature of System Approach

Principles / Factors / Characteristics / Nature of System Approach

There are goals and objectives in system approach. Goal is the overall aim and generally vague while objectives are the specific, definite, concrete, precise steps to be taken towards that goal. For students, teachers should think in terms of objectives and not goals which will ultimately anyways be achieved.

Each and every system has different parts and they are interconnected and we should be aware of these parts.

System approach involves 3 main aspects

  1. Input – Very important as quality is majorly dependent on input. If the Input is of high quality then the resultant output will also be of the desired quality.
  2. Process – All the beneficiaries, resources and methods involved or working towards a beneficial output.
  3. Output – The resultant produced or the goal achieved.

Organisation – Arrangement and preparation in a proper manner to bind all processes. Organisation is wider or broader than a process.

Feedback – It is essential to gauge level of efforts that have gone into the above principles and also to assess and bring in improvements and changes during the next cycle. Feedback when accepted in a positive manner, always leads to progress.
