Discovering Complexity: A Story of an Organization in Crisis and its Response

Join David Hurst FRSA and Prucia Buscell for a Catalyzing Story Conversation. The presentation and discussion builds on the piece written by David as part of the Catalyzing Stories Project, Discovering Complexity: A Story of an Organization in Crisis and its Response.

David Hurst’s story of how his organization was thrown into crisis by an ill-advised takeover on the eve of a sharp recession contains valuable insight into the surprising conditions of current day events. He explains how the management team grappled with complexity to survive. He will share a useful ecological model that maps the trajectories of complex systems in space and over time and helps managers deal with the dilemmas and paradoxes they will encounter.
