CECAN Webinar: Co-creation of innovation: Group Concept Mapping (GCM) to value and engage More Knowledgeable Others in authoring and valuing complex systems

 

Tuesday 24th September 2019, 14:00 - 15:00 BST / 09:00 - 10:00 EDT

Presenter: Mary Kane, Concept Systems, Inc. (US)

 

You are warmly invited to join us for the following CECAN Webinar...

 

Webinar Overview: 

Participation in defining elements or issues within a system is a critical requirement in defining that system adequately.  In many social policy spaces, hearing the voices of those who are affected, and who have a lived knowledge of the issues, is foundational. This is equally important in defining the elements of a complex system to anchor evaluation.

Valuing voice, an empowering extension of community-based participation, seeks and values the important input that each member of a group can provide, whether a teen at his computer or senior evaluator at a UN office. Group concept mapping (GCM) is the methodology that supports such engagement throughout the entire process that produces an innovation.

CECAN Webinar: The Human, Learning, Systems approach to managing in complexity

 

Tuesday 1st October 2019, 13:00 - 14:00 BST

Presenter: Dr Toby Lowe, Senior Lecturer in Public Leadership and Management, Newcastle Business School 

 

You are warmly invited to join us for the following CECAN Webinar...

 

Webinar Overview: 

The webinar views the challenge of creating complexity-informed evaluation by seeing it as a public management challenge. How can public management adopt a more complexity-informed approach? The session will outline an emerging complexity-informed approach to public management: the Human, Learning, Systems (HLS) approach. The HLS approach involves public services responding to the variety of human need through bespoke service provision, using learning as the engine for performance improvement and stewarding the health of the systems which produce social outcomes.

 

Human

One of the three key tasks of managing work in an HLS way (including funding and commissioning of work) means creating the conditions in which people can build effective human relationships.
