Introducing scenario planning modified for quick deployment and iteration, adding a dimension to finding solutions for business with complicated or complex systems. Julio introduces the 7 phases of the matrix: identify, classify, articulate, numbers, systems, engage and evaluate, and offers examples for how this approach can be used in real-life situations.

We describe the work of people who take a systems convening approach, whether they know it or not. We articulate the mindset with which they approach the work and the different dimensions of that work.It’s a context-based, non-prescriptive conceptualisation based on people’s experiences. Presenters: Bev and Etienne Wenger-Traynor; Social Learning Theorists & Consultants 
In this talk, Gerald Midgley will present the systems theory of marginalization that he has been developing and applying in systemic interventions for almost 30 years. This theory offers a generic model of marginalization processes that is equally relevant to relationships between people in small groups, organizations, communities and international relations. Both people and the issues that concern them can become marginalized. Gerald will share... Read more
Humans developed the capacity to walk x years ago. But without feedback we’d still be crawling. We would not have learnt from our stumbling mistakes. Can modern government work without feedback? Can any system? This session is a combined presentation and co-production.Cybernetics is its theoretical basis and circular causality or feedback—that is, where the outcomes of actions are taken as inputs for further action. The gaping hole at the centre... Read more

El sentido común es un modo de actuar automático que está instalado en nuestras mentes y culturas desde hace cuatro... Read more
¿Qué es el Análisis de Redes Organizacionales? Es la aplicación de la Teoría de Redes Sociales en el contexto organizacional. Describe las conexiones que existen entre las personas de un grupo social determinado asumiendo que la forma en la que están conectadas afecta a su acceso a la información, los recursos, el prestigio de los individuos y su inflencia en el grupo.
¿Por qué es relevante para la estrategia o el diseño organizacional? Permite identificar a las personas clave que pueden contribuir a mejorar el desempeño gracias a su influencia. Permite también identificar los vacíos estructurales que incrementan la fragilidad de la organización.
El pensamiento sistémico es una disciplina que trata de capturar y comprender la complejidad para poder intervenir en ella. Para ello explora las estructuras que componen la realidad, los elementos que intervienen en ella—con sus distintas propiedades y comportamientos, así como las interconexiones que se establecen entre estos elementos. Bajo esta visión sistémica: ¿Cómo podemos trabajar el futuro? ¿De qué formas el pensamiento sistémico aborda ... Read more
Organisations are coming under increasing pressure to work sustainably, both environmentally and socially. That will require a process of more or less adaptation, involving varying degrees of organisational learning. But what needs to be learnt? The Viable System Model has the potential to be a very powerful way of identifying what people within organisations need to learn. Based on extensive research carried out in the course of writing his for... Read more
