I’m not comfortable with the description ‘the Liberating Structure ‘Panarchy” – since if I understand correctly, ‘Liberating Structures’ is a collection of facilitation techniques which significantly post-dates a large volume of work around the concept of panarchy (covered here at https://stream.syscoi.com/2019/05/16/panarchy/ , https://stream.syscoi.com/2019/12/31/ecology-and-society-the-dynamics-of-purposeful-change-a-model-silverman-and-hill-2018/ , https://stream.syscoi.com/2018/08/27/silverman-h-and-g-m-hill-2018-the-dynamics-of-purposeful-change-a-model-h-silverman-and-gm-hill/ , and mentioned in https://stream.syscoi.com/2017/08/21/cyclical-history-and-generations/) – there is some referencing in the article – however it is an interesting article about operationalising a concept, so here for consideration.

How do you change a complex system? This is the quintessential question facing the people eager to change systems — like politicians, Scrum Masters, thought leaders, and other change agents.
In this post, we explore how the Liberating Structure ‘Panarchy’ offers a powerful perspective and allows you to put systems thinking into practice. And even though it is perhaps the most complicated of them all, Panarchy brings together all the promises of Liberating Structures: engage everyone and unleash change on every level.
