John Bartlett FRSA will lead this interactive workshop on how we can use Soft Systems Methodology to devise and plan strategic change programmes in business and other contexts.
Soft Systems Methodology is a participatory and flexible process that can be used by teams to create maps to guide the strategic planning process. It’s a straightforward and easily implemented approach that uses simple visuals, developed by the project team, to discuss, decide and lay out the goals, desired outcomes, resource requirements, pathways and steps involved in bringing a programme to fruition. The conceptual maps can be high-level or detailed, depending on requirements.
The event will be held at Horsley Towers, which was designed by Charles Barry in 1828 and was the home of Ada Lovelace, the mathematician, logician, writer and the daughter of Lord Byron.
This event is free but please register so we know that you will be joining us.
