An online community for systems thinking in politics and goverenance
So What’s the Plan?
We are developing a network for systems innovation in the context of governance - a community of practice for those interested in new approaches based upon systems thinking. “A community of practice is a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do, and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly.”
Why are we doing it?
Behind the scenes, our industrial age political systems are not feeling so well as they become ever more mismatched with a world of growing interconnectivity. They are machines of incredible complexity, but linear thinking and organizational design has made them slow, indirect, fragmented, expensive and lacking in transparency. The challenge of developing new forms of decentralized governance is a complex one. In this light we see a new systems innovation approach as central to developing political systems fit for the 21st century.
Political Systems Innovation
Within this new paradigm the nature and definition of governance would change towards the function of governments as; creating a context that enables elements to co-create solutions through networks, whiles designing feedback connections that self-regulate the system, with the ultimate aim of creating systemically efficient, resilience and sustainable societies.
