Tired of managing complex environments with approaches that are based on the assumption of order and predictability? You do realise that complexity needs to be tackled in a fundamentally different way than order, but you cannot pinpoint precisely why and how? You may have heard of the VUCA world, of complex systems, of the Cynefin Framework – but what do you actually DO with it next week?

This 3-day workshop is for people who produce results with an organisation: line and project managers, Agile coaches, organisational developers. We explore the complexity of your own business environment with methods and tools that you can replicate at work. But beyond methods and tools, we want you to expand your mindset. Based on the Amber Compass, we deep dive into ways to develop the complexity savvyness of yourself and your organisation.



Your take-aways:

  • Understand what is fundamentally different in the complex part of your environment, and why that is so.
  • Map your own system to the Cynefin Framework, and know where and how to adapt your management practices.
  • Scan the evolutionary potential of the present.
  • Develop two distinct decision making methods for complicated and complex environments.
  • Improve the practice of aligned autonomy: Package a shared orientation into a strategic storyline, apply the storyline to individual trade-off situations within a self-management context, and transform the whole into a responsive group learning process.
  • Improve the ordered-to-complex connectivity along the value chain of your operation.
  • Learn to manage by heuristics and rules of thumb where objectives and fixed outcomes are not appropriate.
  • Learn a number of learning and facilitation methods that you can replicate with your own team.

The seminar takes place in a private villa in Saint-Paul de Vence, about 15 Min. from Nice Airport and well connected to Europan cities with Easy Jet. We believe it helps to create an atmosphere of relaxed concentration, away from the buzz of office blocks and large hotels. For the same reason, we keep the seminar limited to 12 participants.


Three rooms in the villa itself can be booked together with the course application. There are several bed and breakfast and small hotels within 10-20 minutes walking distance. They can be found on booking.com, tripadvisor.com and similar pages. We specially recommend the following:
Orion Tree Houses  (arrival/departure on Mon/Wed/Fri only)  
  La Toile Blanche
