Complexity Tasters

During a Complexity Taster, you will be introduced in a fascinating new way of looking at the world and human systems. Throughout a half-day experiential session you get a fresh orientation into the many meanings of complexity in a variety of areas and contexts. You gain insights in relation to your own situation, its importance, the difficulties and above all the opportunities. After following a taster you will know how you could make a start embracing complexity, where to find resources and information and how to approach your own processes.

General approach

Every session is unique, the main ingredients of a Cocktail might be mostly similar but the topping and garnish always differ. Besides the interactive character also the examples and experiences will be chosen with regard to the circumstances and the participants.

Besides the Cocktail, which is a general initiation, you can also choose for Themed Tasters or you can ask for a customized one when you face a specific issue.

Two tasters can be easily combined for a daylong immersion in the matter. A Themed Taster succeeding the Cocktail may provide a deepening to bridge for instance towards a larger project or process.

You can make a choice from the menu below.

Gives you a cross disciplined taste of the core complexity phenomena related to human systems and organising.

Based on academic research

An increasing amount of academic research touches complexity or is completely devoted to it. This seems to be no coincidence, during the last decades, researchers from different disciplines discovered some strange and highly interesting phenomena that couldn’t be explained with the prevailing way of thinking. Cross disciplinary analysis revealed unexpected similarities and a new way of thinking was born.

More recently, complexity thinking has also found its way to areas like business, leadership, education, innovation and organisational development. Insights are applied to real life issues.

Many underlying phenomena will be addressed, for instance: patterns, self-organisation, fractals, emergence, adaptivity, generativity, learning, self-similarity, linearity, non-linearity, initial conditions, boundaries, context, scales, process, evolution, systems, resilience, chaos, innovation, management, networks, top-down, bottom-up, …
