What We Do
We partner with government, non-government, and social enterprise organizations to increase awareness of the value of adaptive, systemic and complexity-aware approaches to governance, environmental and urban sustainability and social change efforts. We use the power of interdisciplinary collaboration and draw from systems thinking and complexity science to focus on the human element in complex systems. We facilitate collaboration and experimentation in the application of adaptive frameworks, methods and tools. and build capacity in the use of promising approaches.
As a knowledge broker, we link different sectors and diverse stakeholders to develop relationships and networks.
Strategy, Planning, and Evaluation
We focus on adaptive approaches to strategy and planning, managing and evaluation to help organizations and change agents better address the dynamic and often complex interplay of relationships, influences and uncertainty which is often present in social and environmental change processes.
We offer a complexity-aware approach which complements traditional approaches to planning, monitoring and evaluation drawing from systems and complexity theory. This approach helps build increased situational awareness allowing you to better identify patterns and leverage points for systemic change.
Training, and Capacity building
We develop and offer workshops tailored to a range of audiences and participants which aim to develop capacity in systemic thinking and dealing with complexity.
Through our consulting services, we customize our approach to each organization's unique operating environment to help organizations build and sustain adaptive capacity. This generally involves some or all of the following:
