Find the Simple in the Complex: A Human Systems Dynamic Introduction to Complexity Science

Monday, February 26, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Many people talk about complexity these days. Today's organizations are complex places and, the problems that arise are extremely complex.  Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) uses the science of complexity to move beyond description to action in chaos.

This session will:

  • Introduce the principles of complexity science.
  • Provide you three new tools to help you and your clients see, understand, and influence performance in your complex environments.  

 

Facilitator Bio:

Dr. Glenda Eoyang works with public and private organizations to help them thrive in the face of overwhelming complexity and uncertainty. She is a pioneer in the field of human systems dynamics (HSD), which she founded. Through Human Systems Dynamic Institute, Glenda uses her Models and Methods to help others see patterns in the chaos that surrounds them, understand the patterns in simple and powerful ways, and take practical steps to shift chaos into order. Her clients include Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Oxfam International, Canada School of Public Service, Cargill, Fraser Health Authority (BC), and Roche/Genentech.

Glenda’s latest book, with co-author Royce Holladay, is Adaptive Action: Leveraging Uncertainty in Your Organization (Stanford University Press, April 2013).
