I hope you are staying safe and healthy!
The last time we spoke we started the Part 1 discussion of the System. We specifically focused on:
What a system is
How a system works
How to identify systems
Why identifying and understanding the system is important
If you missed the previous blog post you can find it here.
In this post we are going to discuss a technique you can leverage to create a visual picture of how systems work together.
SYSTEM CONTEXT DIAGRAM

I have provided an example below, and I kept it simple merely for demonstration purposes.
