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

Complexity in Human Systems

November 7 - 8, 2019 | Washington DC

Stephen Hawking famously said that this century would be the century of complexity. From its early days in the Santa Fe Institution, complex adaptive systems theory has increasingly moved from the world of academia to practice. Sometimes known as the science of uncertainty, it provides radically new ways to understand how to create organizations that are resilient and adaptive.

Adaptive Action and Emergent Networks

November 19, 20, 22, 2019 | 12p - 2p (cst) | 6p - 8p (gmt) | Online

You often connect with others to complete projects, share interests, or create social change. You connect through a network of formal and informal exchanges that share energy and other resources to accomplish your goals.

21st Century Collaboration: Co-creating Shared Impact

December 17, 18, 20, 2019 | 12p - 2p (cst) | 6p - 8p (gmt) | Online

Your organization’s environment gets more challenging every day, as rapidly changing markets, policies, demographics, and environmental realities make it difficult to see the best path forward. These challenges also affect the needs of your stakeholders, clients, and customers. Whatever sector you work in, the challenges are shaped by the uncertainty and unpredictability of the 21st century.
