Complexity and Collaboration: Applying Complexity Theory to Organisational Transformation
Schumacher College course
Running 11-15 June 2012
Location: Dartington, UKSuccessful organisations no longer operate in a “top-down” fashion, and benefit from empowering their employees to work collaboratively. Yet many organisations are stuck in hierarchical ways of operating and lack the tools to develop alternatives. This course provides a sound theoretical and practical grounding for all those interested in generating a more collaborative workplace.
During this dynamic course you will be introduced to key principles of complexity theory and learn how they can be applied collaboratively with the aim of co-creating a new culture, structure and way of working within an organisation which is based on these complexity principles.
How can leaders work with complexity to distribute leadership effectively throughout their organisations?
The course will introduce you to and evaluate a variety of qualitative and quantitative tools and methods which can be used to apply complexity theory in different environments. The course ends with a discussion of how insights from complexity can help to tackle apparently intractable problems.
The course is suitable both for practitioners who are dissatisfied with traditional approaches to organisational transformation and academics who would like to study the application of complexity theory in practice. No previous knowledge of complexity theory is required and the course does not include any mathematics.
Prof. Eve Mitleton-Kelly is Director of the Complexity Research Programme at the London School of Economics and visiting Professor at the Open University. She was Executive Coodinator of the Society for Organisational Learning-London from 1977-2008, and has been Policy Advisor to European and USA organisations, the European Commission, and several UK Government Departments.
All course fees include accommodation, food, field trips and all teaching sessions.
