When analyse-plan-impleme­nt isn't enough!

  • Oct 22, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The dominant analyse-plan-implement approach to creating change is usually insufficient when the situation is complex or emergent. There is too much uncertainty and unpredictability to be confident about exactly how things will pan out. In these situations we need to focus on developing agility and adaptability by letting learning and action co-evolve (letting the situation talk back). 

This month's session will use some practical examples and group activities to explore some aspects of how to do this.


6:00 - 6:30  Networking over drinks and nibbles

6:30 - 7:40  Exploration of topic

7:40 - 8:00  Wrap up and informal conversations

There is dinner for interested parties afterwards.

About the presenter: Markus Fietz

During his 15 years as a management consultant in IBM and Aptech, followed by 13 years managing a research and development enterprise at CSIRO, Markus developed a passionate interest in how decisions are made in unpredictable, uncertain and emergent situations. He recognized that his strong analytic training and early experience were valuable but insufficient for these situations. 

In 2013, Markus left CSIRO to pursue these interests through Discerning Action, of which he is Founder and Principal.

    I would love to have gone I(particularly with the work I am currently involved in) but I have another engagement that has been in my calendar for almost a month. Look forward to hearing the stories/seeing the slides.
