Coping with Chaos: Three Rules for Adaptive Capacity (for non-profits)
Nonprofits face unprecedented challenges today. Our communities suffer from conflict and bias across differences of all kinds. Our funders ask for more systemic change and expect more precise and reliable evaluation. Unpredictable changes in workforce, public policy, economics, and environment fill every day with potential risk and promising rewards. Such levels of complexity require new and powerful tools of data collection, analysis, and action. At the same time, we have less time and fewer resources to invest.
Fortunately, the science of complexity offers some simple advice for wise action in chaotic times. Human systems dynamics is an emerging field at the intersection of nonlinear science and effective practice. In this session, Glenda Eoyang, founding executive director of the Human Systems Dynamics Institute, shares three simple rules that help her and her organization thrive in the current chaos.
