Dear All

Bob Dick is our presenter for the final conversation for this year on

Complexity Models and Processes.

In this conversation we'll study how to distinguish complex situations from those that are less complex. We'll use the Cynefin complexity model to probe the nature of complexity. We'll explore how the models of complexity theory and the processes and mindsets of action research work well together. We'll practise applying these to the issues that most occupy our current attention. And enjoy each others company and interaction with some light refreshment.
