Systems Innovation Seminar

An overview to systems innovation process and systems change


Overview


Many of today’s strategic challenges, from climate change and cybersecurity to inequality, migration, water scarcity or financial instability can be better thought of as complex adaptive systems, continuously recreated through the ongoing choices, actions, and interactions among numerous players operating across dense global networks. There is growing awareness that these systems are in fact fundamentally complex and thus require a different approach. They demand a more holistic, networked, emergent and evolutionary approach. Building on complexity theories’ deep knowledge of dynamic systems, systems innovation presents an alternative to our traditional centralized approaches. Systems innovation is a new systems-based approach to enabling change within complex organizations. It is a holistic approach that looks at the underlying dynamics and root causes of the issue, working with the innate evolutionary potential of complex adaptive systems to enable transformative change in their structure, behavior and functional capabilities.

This seminar gives an introduction to our Systems Innovation Guide which brings together in an accessible way key ideas from complexity thinking and applies them to enabling systems-level transformation. This guide draws upon the work of prominent systems thinkers such as Donella Meadows and Russell Ackoff along with the insights from contemporary researchers and social entrepreneurs to give an overview of the current state of systems innovation. The seminar should be of relevance to anyone interested in transformative change within large complex organizations.
