Why attend this workshop?

Traditional problem-solving methods assume clear boundaries, singular perspectives and simple (usually one-way) relationships. The challenges you face today follow none of these rules. Whether you are engaged in public policy, healthcare, education, finance, or security, your most pressing problems are messy, confusing and massively entangled. No wonder you find yourself stuck!

Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) offers an alternative approach. Based on the theory of complexity science and decades of real-world application, HSD helps you see your problems in new ways, understand multiple perspectives and take practical action to influence the simple patterns that drive your complex challenges. In short, HSD helps you tame your most wicked issues.
