“Network and complex science offered new prisms into problems that were proving to be intractable when approached by traditional mechanistic methods.” – Alicia Juarrero
We are dealing with an increasingly complex networked world. The need to find and introduce new pathways for innovation, resilience and novelty are vital as we are navigating towards a post-Covid world. At the same time we are negotiating the continued uncertainty and constraints associated with second waves and potential future crises. The need for complexity and network-informed thinking and practice is now as pertinent as ever.
Join Valdis Krebs, Dave Snowden, Sonja Blignaut and other like-minded practitioners in exploring the fields of network and complexity thinking, synergies and generative differences and how the interaction between these two fields can lead to novel new approaches to intractable challenges facing business and society including among others …
- Building informal networks for mutual support and peer-to-peer information flows and knowledge exchange
- A radically different approach to cross-silo innovation (e.g. connecting academia & industry)
- Identifying adjacent possibles and monitor for early warning signals
- Networks and building more adaptive, innovative, and resilient organisations, communities and innovation clusters
- Economic regeneration and innovation. Stimulating distributed innovation at local levels
- Bridging ideological differences and combating polarisation
- New organisational forms and leadership structures
