Our world is a complex interactive process that is full of uncertainty and is often quite unpredictable. Our management systems are however based on predictability and certainty. If we accept that predictability and certainty are false gods, how else might we approach the task of management. If we accept uncertainty and non-predictability are ever present (where chaos is normal), what might we do differently?
More webinars are coming up in the next months! Each webinar will be organised and presented by one or more CIP members.
The aim of these webinars is to enable discussion and exchange of knowledge, expertise and ideas amongst the CIP members on current and emergent topics. A webinar can address any specific or general challenge.
Crisis management teams need to make fast and complex decisions about unique situations. Research in judgment and decision making shows that this seems to be easier said than done. Reasons for making wrong decisions lay both in individuals as well as in team processes.
In this presentation, Todd will introduce High Reliability Organizing (HRO), how we can identify complex potential incidents before they take place and how time-pressed professionals should shape their safety programs.
This presentation will describe current research that is examining how rather reactive theories concerning crises might be used to stimulate foresight. Three cases will be used to illustrate this practical use of the re-imagined theory.
