Those involved with complexity thinking either tend to be focused on modelling or tend to use complexity terms metaphorically as a way to support practice – in management, policy-making, development and so on.
An area which receives less attention is how do we investigate the complex nature of the world empirically – how do we explore whether concepts from complexity really represent ‘the way things are’. And what does that mean for managers and practitioners?
The purpose of this one-day workshop is to share practice and perspective about how complexity thinking can effectively be investigated in real-life situations and learning be applied.
Places are restricted to 15 and the event is free and will include lunch. If you would be interested in attending, please email Jean Boulton on firstname.lastname@example.org describing your interest.
The day will be one of dialogue and discussion with no presentations.
This workshop, sponsored by the Institute of Physics Nonlinear and Complex Physics group, seeks to provide a forum to explore the way complexity is understood and practiced by different disciplines and provide the opportunity for cross-disciplinary learning and debate
