fragmentation of systems thinking

Fragmentation of systems thinking: Systems thinking is not a coherent body of knowledge but derived from a conglomerate of approaches, concepts, tools and methods with often different – even conflicting – interpretations on the one hand and different names for a similar and even same thing on the other hand.

To benchmark in this context would imply that we can only compare the same type of systems (e.g. an organisation, function, project, person) that use the same approach in the same context, otherwise we compare apples with eggs.
