Systems Innovation London Conference
September 6 - September 7
Chief Executive, Benjamin Taylor will be hosting a workshop at the Systems Innovation London Conference on 6-7 September. In this session, he will provide a short accessible introduction to the Viable Systems Model which represents some core, underlying, essential elements of organisations across their various scales and talk about how the model can be used from single services to whole, complex, place-based systems. Drawing on his experience through the Public Service Transformation Academy and his public service consultancy, RedQuadrant, he will provide case studies, and answer questions.
Systems Innovation is a conference on applying systems and complexity thinking towards innovating new solutions to complex challenges. This is an open forum for those organisations and individuals applying complexity and systems thinking in various areas of economy, society, technology or environment towards enabling systems innovation and whole systems change; it is for anyone who feels that complexity theory or systems thinking is central to what they do – or wishes to learn how to apply these new ideas – and is interested in engaging with peer organisations and individuals in open discussion and ideas exchange.
The event will bring together up to 10-15 organisations and some 100-200 individual participants, for an active two days of presentations, workshops and brainstorming sessions on applying the ideas of complexity and systems thinking. The forum will be an opportunity to meet and exchange ideas and perspectives with others in an open space, to foster collaboration and awareness across the community, to hear from our speakers and brainstorm on specific issues of interest to participants. Whether you are a seasoned complexity thinker or new to the area this is a place to connect, learn and see what is happening when it comes to the application of these exciting new ideas to tackling some of today’s most complex challenges across many domains.
