|Embracing Complexity: Adaptive management in a volatile and complex
Jean will describe what it means to say the world is complex and explore what that implies for managing organisations and projects, and how to balance the tensions between efficiency and adapting, between standardisation and customisation.
Jean, lead author of Embracing Complexity is a strategy and organisation consultant and academic. She was Head of Engineering Operations for BAe Commercial Aircraft (1989-92), and she has been chair and non-executive director of a number of other organisations, and has consulted many blue chip companies and charities.
Her background in theoretical physics coupled with her practical engagement in the fields of management and social research give her a multi-faceted, informed and practical perspective on the implications of embracing complexity and managing in a volatile, uncertain and complex world.
