Online Course

Human systems dynamics (HSD) prepares you to thrive in an uncertain future.
When you see, understand, and influence complex,
wicked issues, nothing is intractable.

Are you interested in becoming a certified HSD Professional, but the schedule just doesn't work in your local time zone? 

Responding to requests from the Asia-Pacific region, we have added an HSD Professional Certification that accommodates time zones in Asia-Pacific regions. Here are the dates:
     START DATE: February 29 (US) /  March 1 (Asia-Pacific) 
     END DATE:  July 18 (US) / July 19 (Asia-Pacific)
This launches a new opportunity, scheduled for people who live, work, and play in the Asia-Pacific region (download Learning Journey for specific times). You are invited to join us in an all-virtual Human Systems Dynamics (HSD) Professional Certification program.
