Systematic Innovation in Complex Environments
As the world becomes more inter-connected, it becomes inherently more complex and more prone to tipping into chaos. This phenomenon is not helped by the fact that most individuals do not understand the differences between how complex systems work. A lot of our assumptions are plain wrong when it comes to complexity – we look for root causes when there are none; we adopt command-and-control management strategies when self-organisation is the only viable method; and we fail to recognise that whenever discontinuous change happens, things will get worse before they get better. This webinar offers a crash-course in complex systems theory and provides real-world examples of how enterprises that embrace the complexity are progressively displacing traditional organisations.
