Series Overview

Organizational theory and practice have been evolving for over 80 years. Its scientific base is in general systems theory, and specifically open systems theory which describes/includes living systems. Systems engineering and computer science are, likewise, derived from the science of general systems theory. The most popular organizational design trends today stem from these theoretical roots – Multidimensional organization design, socio-technical organization design, agile development and practice, modular design, and digital platform organization design.

This workshop series presents the open systems model, its core architecture and principles, and how it’s being used in the most innovative applications of organization design today. In addition, the course has a focus on the role of the organization practitioner in the facilitation of design choices and operating models. What we offer is an “applied open-system thinking” framework. It is therefore both historical / conceptual and practical/applied to our current world.

The first in a series of organization design seminars, this workshop offers both the beginner and those more steeped in design an opportunity to explore organization design theory and application, and leave feeling more comfortable with the topic, its applications and roots.

Each episode is intended to be “free standing,” meaning there is no requirement that participants attend previous sessions. Each begins with a small amount of pre work, intended to familiarize everyone with the content to be discussed.
