Organising as complex responsive processes of relating

My latest book, Complexity – a key idea for business and society, arises out of a community of inquiry, where a conversation about complexity and organising which has been going on for more than 20 years.

Contributing to the conversation are my faculty colleagues, Kiran ChauhanEmma CreweKaren Norman, Nick Sarra and Karina Solsø, the students and graduates of the Doctor of Management (DMan) programme at the University of Hertfordshire, and the wider research community who attend the annual conference.

If this video makes you interested in the part time professional doctorate the DMan, which is run psychodynamically, the conference, which this year takes the theme of the theory and practice or anything else, then please get in touch.

The book is available here: https://amzn.to/3GIZYFj . Many thanks to David O’Dwyer of https://lnkd.in/edgdxwgA for making this video.

    Very good video. I find an deep connection between your comments. and the extraordinary work recently published by Iain McGilchrist; The Matter With Things: Our Brains, our Delusions and The Unmaking of The world. https://channelmcgilchrist.com/the-matter-with-things/(I have no commercial connection, just a fan). He is something of a polymath (psychiatrist, Neuroscience researcher, and philosopher). This is no pop science book. It is 1400 pages long and has over 4000 academic references. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iain_McGilchrist
    I cannot do justice to his extraordinary thesis, there are plenty of YouTube Videos where he goes about explaining his work. here is a primer from 2014 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DiPrM0DNI8w It is from 2014 and his thinking has matured over the last 8 years.
