Syllabus

Chapter 1: Introducing complexity

We will define complexity and explore how complex situations require changes to the way we apprehend the world.

Chapter 2: Thinking in systems

We will describe and model how different factors, such as people, ideas or things interact over time and generate the complexity in a specific problem situation.

Chapter 3: Mapping the dynamics of complexity

We will learn the role of accumulations and nonlinearities in complex systems and observe how they contribute to both the changes over time and the unexpected and often frustrating behaviours we observe. We will learn to use free online software to simulate complex situations.

Chapter 4: Living with complexity

We will learn a number of tools and techniques that will accelerate our understanding of real world situations and help us to act with impact when faced with complexity. We will also consider the implications of complexity for management, social change and sustainability.

Instructors

Dr Cameron Guthrie

I am a member of faculty at the Toulouse Business School in the department of Information, Operations and Management Sciences. My research and teaching seeks to understand and improve the way we deal with complex situations. How do we comprehend complex situations, make better decisions and find leverage? How do ideas and perspectives form through time? I draw on economic history and systems theory in my research and systems thinking tools in my teaching. I use a range of quantitative, qualitative and historical methods for my research. As a reflective practitioner, I am also interested in the impact of various pedagogical innovations.
