Now that you have built out your system map, it’s time to identify points of intervention: areas where you think taking action would have a positive effect through the system.

Where on your map would a change in the value of a node produce a beneficial ripple effect across the system? Experiment with different nodes and follow the effects along the dynamics on the map. 

You may choose to mark potential points of intervention on your map by circling nodes, feedback loops or larger sections of your map.
