|Free Email Course: Organizational Complexity|
It is almost trivial to state that organizations are complex. They do not yield to simple descriptions, and their behaviour defies simplified explanations. Understanding what this means and how to engage organizations appropriately, taking their complexity into account, requires some effort, but is a worthwhile and rewarding thing to do. It will help you to interact with the organization more appropriately, and will also inform you how to bring about organizational change in productive ways.
"Complexity" has almost become a buzz word. Sometimes we use it as a kind of disclaimer to state that something is "very difficult". However, complexity is is more than that. It is a new paradigm, a new way of thinking an approaching things that adds much value to the way we go about engaging such "complex" phenomena.
Our free email course explores the meaning of "organizational complexity". During this 11 day course you will increase your understanding about what complexity is and what that means for the realities found in organizations. It will also provide you with the knowledge to know what to look out for in organizations so you can best use their complex behaviour to advance the goals and objectives of the organizations rather than to be taken by surprise by the unforeseen consequences and behavioural patterns that are so prevalent in organizations.
