A HISTORY OF WORKING WITH COMPLEXITY

A long history of working with principles of complexity in complex human and organizational systems has led to the development of models, applications and tools that integrate essential perspectives and approaches into  projects, work and systems. Plexus Institute collaborated with network members and partner organizations in a variety of ways including:

  • Incubation of complexity based projects and research initiatives
  • Design and facilitation of  complexity practice based programs/workshops
  • Design and implementation of action research projects
  • Consortium based joint research and project management

Adaptive Positive Deviance and Liberating Structures were both initially developed at Plexus.
