Systems Management Workshops from Systems Practice
The development of leadership resources
What do we offer?
We offer a development service, aimed a building complexity management skills.
The ability to manage emotional and conceptual complexity
More specific deliverables:
1. The ability to frame business problems relating to profitability, growth and business effectiveness.
2. The ability to set up viable projects to address these.
3. Assured implementation in practice.
Application areas (“Topics”):
The contexts within which we develop skills for problem solving include:
· Organisational problem solving
· Long term planning
· Organisational design
· Strategy design
· Project design
Specific deliverables include:
The application areas/topics are presented in three formats:
A seminar series.
A workshop series.
A project series.
The primary difference between these three series, is the depth of application experience created in the sessions. The theoretical input is more or less the same, the learning is not.
As clients we see senior managers, typically 35-55 years of age, with more responsibility for, and control over, resources than capacity to process the complexity, and who acknowledges this..
What do we believe?
We help people empower themselves by building belief and confidence in their knowledge and skills through the application success on their own situations.
What is different?
Our approach is holistic and systemic in spirit, and we are humbled by the complexity in reality. We assume complexity and the limitations of all humans (especially our own) to process this complexity adequately. We acknowledge our inquiry tools are inadequate when measured against real world complexity, but we know they are vastly better than that which is generally (not) used in business. We have the practical track record to demonstrate this effectiveness.
We do not believe people can be taught; we believe people have an enormous capacity for learning and adapting, provided the appropriate environment. Teaching for us is not about imparting our knowledge, but about enabling people to acquire their own knowledge through building the requisite mental frameworks for dealing with their complexities.
