What is an Adaptive Action Lab?

An Adaptive Action Lab (AA Lab) brings the best of consulting and training into a single event. It is a work session, as opposed to a training session. As a participant, you define and work on your most intractable challenge. Then you learn about human systems dynamics (HSD) as you apply your new learning to frame your challenge in a way that points to your best next wise action. You leave the session with two tangible outcomes. First, you have a clear plan for moving forward in your challenge. Second, you carry with you a new perspective and effective models and methods that help you address your next challenge.

Join us in an AA Lab to learn how HSD can help you leverage the complexity of your challenges to create powerful energy for change.

Upcoming Adaptive Action Labs

Generative Engagement: Beyond Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Nov 19, 2018 | Royal Roads University, Victoria, BC Canada

Everyone is talking about engaging across differences. Refugees, racial and cultural communities, victims of harassment, political adversaries, youth, elders, rural and urban dwellers—all experience the painful patterns of prejudice. Individuals and institutions are doing more than just talking.

Re-Innovate: Take Complex Change to Scale

Nov 20-21, 2018 | Royal Roads University, Victoria, BC Canada

Replication used to be the soul of taking an innovation to scale . . . If it works here, it should work there and everywhere. How can I implement with fidelity? We always follow best practices and evidence-based principles.

Collaboration and Adaptive Action: Build Connections for Powerful Action

December 6, 14, 2018 | 1p - 4p (cst) | Online

In the diversity of the 21st century, it is easy to allow differences that define us to become the dividing lines that separate us. Groups, teams, communities become insular and find it difficult to work together. And yet, in such a diverse world, it’s critical that we learn to share resources, perspectives, and talents in ways that enrich all our opportunities. Human systems dynamics (HSD) offers models and methods for supporting deep collaboration that leverages all contributions.
