Human Learning Systems: The Role of National Government in Systems InnovationHuman Learning Systems: The Role of National Government in Systems Innovation | Si Network
Human Learning Systems is a complexity-inspired approach to public services. It is an alternative approach to public management which embraces the complexity of the real world, and enables us to work effectively in that complexity.
This approach offers an alternative to the “Markets, Managers and Metrics” approach of New Public Management. It outlines a way of making social action and public service more responsive to the bespoke needs of each person that it serves, and creates an environment in which performance improvement is driven by continuous learning and adaptation. It fosters in leaders a sense of responsibility for looking after the health of the systems, and it is these systems which create positive outcomes in people’s lives.
In this event we will be talking with Toby Lowe – Visiting Prof of Public Management at the Centre for Public Impact – we will explore how the Human Learning Systems offers an alternative paradigm for public management which enables national government to support and enable local systems innovation.
Anneli Rautiainen and Paula Tyrväinen will also join to speak on their experience implementing such an approach with the Innovation Centre of the Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI).
