“Later in the bar” – SCiO UK May 2021

Mon 24 May 2021 19:00–21:00 GMT+1

“Later in the bar” is a SCiO UK networking event where we try to recapture some of the features of meeting in the bar after an open meeting. This is an opportunity to mingle freely (online) and set your own agenda. These social networking events are different from the open days (speakers and discussion) and member-only development days (each agenda slot filled set by members for learning discussions). Social networking events combine some initial small group work and provide completely open opportunities to mingle as individuals and groups. The format will vary slightly based on numbers.

SCiO Espana – La evolución organizacional – Abril 2021

Tue 27 April 2021 19:00–21:00 GMT+1

La evolución organizacional La esencial triple pregunta de los seres humanos, “quién soy, de dónde vengo y a dónde voy”, es perfectamente aplicable a las organizaciones que, en definitiva, no dejan de ser agregaciones de personas conformando un sistema complejo. En este pequeño espacio  vamos a realizar un rápido recorrido a las tipologías organizativas, sus estados de evolución y cómo descubrir “dónde está” cada una, aspecto fundamental para valorar cuáles son sus posibles opciones de transformación y evolución desde una perspectiva consciente y sostenible.  Presentado por Pedro Martín de Hijas.

SCiO-NL April 2021 meeting – Imagineering

Fri 9 April 2021 14:00–16:00 CET+1

This month SCIO-NL will be hosting a presentation on Imagineering. People most commonly associate ‘imagineering’ with Disney, but this is definitely too limited a view.  Imagineering includes elements of complexity theory and systems thinking and uses this knowledge specifically in a human-oriented approach to change. The presentation will be given by Iris de Jong, who has a degree in imagineering and uses it successfully as an independent contractor. The presentation will be in English, so international members are more than welcome….
