Description

Join us for a day of getting practical in using a systems approach to make change happen in the face of difficult, stuck, intractable, and damn hard problems.

Wasafiri works with leaders and organisations to tackle some of humanity's toughest problems. Through our work on issues such as countering violent extremism, climate change, and agricultural reform in Africa, we have developed an applied approach to complex change that helps leaders and organisations:

  • Understand the nature of complex problems (and why they can seem so stuck)
  • Answer the question “so what do I do next?” in order to effect change

This year we are running Labs in London, Nairobi, and New York. As a 'preview event' we are offing a one-off (almost) free Lab here in the South Lakes.

What the day will offer:

  • An introduction to our Systemcraft tool that you can use to help individuals and leaders work with complex adaptive problems to generate systems change
  • A chance to work with peers to apply Systemcraft to the complex problems you are working with, or supporting leaders to work with
  • A chance to meet like-minded people grappling with similar issues

What it won’t offer:

  • The answer to everything
  • A simple easy solution to climate change (or any other complex issue…)

Who is the day for?

  • Those working in leadership and organisational development
  • Those working in international development, social movements, or on social change issues
  • Those interested in using a systems approach to tackle complex or ‘wicked problems’
  • Leaders asking themselves ‘what do I do next?” in the face of a complex problem

What the day will be like:

  • We will offer some thinking and theory input
  • We will share stories, case studies and examples from our, and others', experience
  • You will have a chance to explore and apply the ideas (with other participants) to issues you are working on
  • There will be aspects of uncertainty, discovery, and the testing of ideas – there will be somethings we are not quite sure about
  • A bit of an experiment in the sharing of Systemcraft and its application to different settings
  • The day is a 'preview' for our international Labs, hence we are charging for food and venue and offering all ideas for free!
  • Lunch will be included
