About the workshop
This one-day workshop introduces participants to the complexity-approach for systems change and other theories underpinning Wicked Lab’s approach.
The workshop is designed to build participant's understanding of why wicked problems can't be addressed with just projects and programs. It illustrates why a complexity, solution ecosystem and systemic innovation approach is best suited to addressing wicked problems, and demonstrates how communities and governments can work this way.
Structure and delivery
Participants will be taken through a combination of presentation materials and exercises which cover:
Different types of problems: simple, complicated, complex and wicked
Approaches for addressing these different problem types
Academic and practitioner interest in taking a complexity approach
How to take a complexity approach to create systems change
Wicked Lab’s approach to addressing wicked problems and how it can be used
Establishing a boundary and mapping the solution ecosystem
Systems change measurement and how Wicked Lab’s Tool for Systemic Change reports support this
Participants will learn how Wicked Lab’s Tool provides:
Visibility of solution ecosystems
Measurement of ecosystem dynamics
Insights into how to strengthen solution ecosystem
The workshop can be delivered online or face to face

This program allows you to stand back, zoom out and see the whole picture. Which can be terrifying but is the only way to wrap your head around all of it. The Wicked Lab team are brilliant.
