If you are reading this, chances are good that you have experienced the sphere of interactions that Edgar Morin is referring to: the complex dynamics that account for the divergence of the results from the plans and intentions.
We believe, and you probably agree, that off-the-shelf templates and canvases do not adequately assist us in steering complexity towards desired results. We have identified two main limitations of such approaches:
- They do not perceive the systemic inter-relations, nor do they address the contextual nuances from which the complex web of interactions arise.
- They do not serve as a conduit for intuition and creativity; the two prime ingredients in decision making under uncertainty and complexity.
To address these shortcomings, our Advanced Program in Systemic Design offers a multi-disciplinary approach to learning and inquiry. In these we draw upon insights from Systems Thinking, System Dynamic, Depth Psychology, Design, and Expressive Arts. Our interactive, reflective and multi-disciplinary training program is organised in two foundations:
- Systems Thinking: equipping you with the skills you need to learn in and about complexity.
- Design Beyond Thinking: honing your intuitive and creative capacity to deal with ambiguity and uncertainty of decision environments.
Whether you are a designer, sustainability practitioner, consultant, change agent or managers, we help you to reorganise your toolset, and redefine your role in the quest for optimal solutions for the organisations, constituents, and ecosystems you serve.
