A new forum for Systems Thinking Practitioners

Systems Thinking is Dead - Long Live Systems Thinking

A collaborative exploration of the feasibility of establishing a chapter of the UK based association SCiO (Systems and Cybernetics in Organisations) in Sydney. Hosted by Stefan Norrvall. See also https://www.meetup.com/Leadership-in-Complex-Adaptive-Systems/events/247307530/.

A new forum for Systems Thinking Practitioners

$25 includes afternoon tea, payable on arrival.

Benjamin Taylor https://www.linkedin.com/in/antlerboy/ of the London based organisation RedQuadrant http://www.redquadrant.com, a passionate systems thinking advocate and non- executive director of SCiO, is visiting Australia in February and is keen to take this opportunity to introduce SCiO and help us make a start in establishing a local chapter.

  The afternoon will include:

SC101. A Beginners Workshop in Modelling using the Viable Systems Model

Please book early by contacting the organiser at steve.hales@scio.org.uk.

This is a whole day workshop designed for those relatively new to VSM and provides basic training in building a Model of an organisation using VSM.

The attendees work together in groups to develop their model of a case study organisation and to diagnose weaknesses. The workshop follows a structured approach, with a series of steps that take the groups through a modelling process in (relatively!) easy stages.

Systemic Strategy Development

For SCiO members who wish to apply systems principles to developing strategy.

Traditional approaches to strategy tend to focus on a linear planning model and rarely work in situations where the environment changes, or where competitors are also trying to carry out their strategies – which is mostly the norm.

This workshop will provide a radically different approach to developing strategy – one that uses change, turbulence and the relationship between different players as its key building blocks.

Systemic Organisational Design

For SCiO members who wish to use systems principles for designing organisations.

The viable system model is often used in diagnostic mode, as a powerful way of understanding the strengths and weaknesses of organisational structures, communications and control processes. This workshop will explore the use of the VSM in design mode, based on detailed exploration of a real case study.
