Think Anew, Act Anew

The title comes from Lincoln, the content from intense frustration that many people are simply talking anew, but thinking and acting in entrained patterns of doing what others have done rather than what is needed in the present.   In this presentation, which will be polemical at times, the case will be made for using complexity to rethink they way we act in organisations.  Focusing less on idealised future states and structured processing complexity nevertheless regards tight management disciplines to execute.  In many ways it has a more in common with scientific management in its recognition of human judgement than much the the ‘systems’ approaches of the past three decades.  The presentation will combine theory with examples practice to establish the simple principles that underpin new ways of working that recognise the limitations of the past, and its value.
