Systems Theory

Considering the building blocks of systems theory: input, throughput, and output variables as well as the principles (interdependence, nonsummativity, and equi-and multi-finality), analyze the group, The First Wives Club. Take 2-3 pages to do this analysis. Your last paragraph or two should reflect on what you learned about this group by considering them from a systems perspective (that you might not have realized otherwise).

Typed, double-spaced, 12 point font, 1 inch margins (all the way around). Cover page - name appears ONLY on the cover page.
