Complexity is a Language

Found this:


i) Contribute to the development of a theory of complex social systems and organisations.
ii) Explore and develop models, tools and methods to help organisations understand and cope with complexity.
iii) Develop a method of discourse of complexity, within an organisational context.

COMPLEXITY PROVIDES AN EXPLANATORY FRAMEWORK AND A LANGUAGE, WHICH OFFER A DIFFERENT WAY OF THINKING AND SEEING THE WORLD.

It's nice to see that the London School of Economics considers the study of complexity as a language rather than a set of research methods. (In fact, the inclusion of language/history/society seems to be the case in many European complexity centers :-) )

  • Hi - Complexity Science is one of my key research themes... and in particular how individuals can make sense and learn in the context of their day to day working lives by means of it. We devised a complexity starter kit to help groups of people in organisations get to learn how to use the language in their own context and environment and make sense of it for themselves... fascinating topic area!
    Cheers, Carol
