Strategy in a Complex World, What’s the Point? – Discussion Thu, February 24 2:00pm – 3:00pm GMT
It is well known that complex adaptive systems are unamenable to traditional linear approaches to management and strategy. They consist of a wide array of actors acting, reacting, adapting, and evolving. International politics, cities, social networks, and communities are examples. However, the question is, does their somewhat uncontrollable and unpredictable nature render management and strategy irrelevant? Or is it simply that we need to reinvent our understanding and approach to strategy in light of a new recognition of the complexity of the organizations we inhabit and work with.
In this discussion between Orit Gal and Mark McCoy we will be unpacking this question and exploring if there can be strategy in a world of complexity what does it look like and how might we go about it. Orit Gal is the senior lecturer for strategy and complexity at Regents University London. Developer of the theory of Social Acupuncture she teaches a range of courses relating to the application of complexity theories to operational design, in areas such as innovation, social entrepreneurship, economic development, and conflict resolution.
This will be a 1-hour discussion hosted by the Si London Hub. The event will be a hybrid one with the interview streamed from our co-working location with participants joining via Zoom. Date: 24th, 2 pm UKStrategy in a Complex World, What’s the Point? – Discussion | Si Network
