At a recent ‘lunchtime talk’* session, Eliat Aram, the Institute’s CEO attempted a second ‘bite’ into Complexity theory, this time introducing staff and guests to the ‘complex responsive processes of relating’ perspective developed by Prof. Stacey, Prof. Shaw and Prof. Griffin and its implications to intervention design and organisational development work.
Eliat was a member of the pioneering faculty of the Complexity and Management Centre of Hertfordshire Business School for over 10 years prior to joining the TIHR and her own work, including her PhD thesis, is rooted in this thinking.
This talk is part of a series of talks exploring the meaning and implications of the Complexity perspective to organisational studies.
Part 1, An Introduction to Complexity Theory, which is advisable to watch first can be found here.
The page includes an audio recording of Eliat’s talk and discussion session with TIHR staff and guests and links to the accompanying powerpoint presentation.
