The Program is interactive and delivered online over 3 weeks.  It consists of the following parts:

Part 1 Using a Complexity-based Approach to Address Wicked Problems

Part 1 provides participants with an understanding of the characteristics of complex (wicked) problems, and why a complexity approach is required to address them. 


Part 2 Enabling Phase Transitions  


Part 2 provides participants with the understanding, knowledge and skills required to assist communities to strengthen their adaptive dynamics, and transition to new ways of working that have increased system functioning and performance.


Part 3 Track and Measure Ecosystem Transitions


In order to develop strategies to take action, Part 3 provides participants with the understanding, knowledge and skills to track and measure transitions, and to interpret Transition Cards and Ecosystems Maps. 

Participating online via zoom, you’ll join a group of participants for live presentations, demonstrations of the Tool for Systemic Change and case study activities so that you can demonstrate your understanding.  There will also be homework activities to complete between sessions that will be built upon each session. Each online session will be recorded so that you can access the recording after the session for future reference.

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. Emily and Sharon are brilliant.

Dr Kate Barrelle - Chief Impact Officer + Cofounder STREAT / Moving Feast

If you are seeking system-change and looking to map activity and impact across a dynamic, interconnected ecosystem, this program is for you. Starting with a clear theoretical foundation, the program takes off with the intelligent and intuitive ecosystem mapping online tool that helps to communicate and crystallise the complexity in system-change work. The Wicked Lab Ecosystem mapping tool will be immensely valuable as SENVIC encourages break-through collaboration and to coordinate and motivate collaborative, cross-sector innovation.

This program really gets you thinking bigger, and the tool is incredibly impressive

I've been around complexity theory for a while in my professional life, but haven't seen anything that draws theory into practice in this kind of nuanced way before. Definitely excited at the opportunity to use this as a collective.
