Who We Are
We understand complexity and how to enable people and organisations to engage with their challenges in ways that will create direction, focus and momentum for sustainable action.
Given the nature of complex systems, it is impossible to have a one size fits all approach to the work we do. Each organisation and context are connected and entangled in their own unique ways. So, each approach is context dependent, not copied or imported.
When challenges are complex, playing it too safe is unsafe. It’s more than a pivot, it’s a paradigm shift that needs different tools and methods. Working collaboratively builds capability for next time.
Operating in complexity requires mapping starting conditions and working towards a direction of travel. The four phase process of Discovery – Sense-making – Insights to Action – Monitoring Impact is iterative and built on complexity principles that enable innovation and the next right steps.
We add value by selecting the team and the methods most appropriate to each client and assignment, and by working in collaboration.
Allowing for something new to emerge
It’s not about consensus as not everything in a complex system can be known
Going beyond admiring the problem and forcefully advocating preferred positions, to reaching enough agreement to take action, monitor impact and decide.. “ So what, Now what’..
Complex issues and social systems defy traditional analytic and problem solving techniques, through the characteristics of
So what now what?
We are informed by the work of a broad range of writers, thinkers and practitioners. Congruence and consistency with the principles of social complexity underpin what we use and how we work
