In our dynamic and rapidly changing world, institutions need to have increased capacity to plan for and respond to changing conditions and new challenges. Institutions need to develop and sustain the systems to purposefully be adaptive: to proactively shape their future.
What does this entail? It means building adaptive capacity
Mapping the Landscape of Adaptive Practice
On June 16th, the Complexity&Praxis community hosted an interactive workshop designed to map the landscape of adaptive practice in international development. Over 20 organizations were in attendance, including MSH, USAID, and FSG.
The "Complexity&Praxis" community of practice is now forming. This is a community of practitioners, students and academics sharing experiences from across different sectors in the applications of complexity-aware, systemic or adaptive approaches to planning, management and evaluation.
Supporting institutions, organizations and change agents working to address the challenges of the 21st century. We help organizations bridge knowledge across sectors and develop the learning systems necessary to deal with the challenges of today and build the adaptive capacity to address the challenges of tomorrow.
We do this through the advancement of adaptive practice across knowledge domains, incorporating a systemic perspective and complexity-aware approach to strategy, planning, management and evaluation, and by facilitating cross-sectoral collaboration.
