*--September 1st, 2016*
*Divided We Fall: The Common Good Beyond Bureaucracy*
_Bureaucracy was an inspired invention, when government was out of control, and graft and corruption reigned supreme. Today, though, public policy innovation is strangled by the inertia of bureaucratic politics and regulations. The structures that generate silos of funding and function are barriers to innovation for the common good. On the other hand, powerful personal interests are eager to step in wherever government constraints are lifted. Explore how we can set conditions to guarantee work toward common goods without the waste and frustration of locked-in structures of governance._

Associates Quarterly Meeting, 11:00am - 12:30pm

*--October 6th, 2016*
*Greater Than the Sum of Their Parts: Collaborate for Community*
_Collaboration is easy to talk about—almost everyone does—but it is not so easy to do. Internally and externally, all groups sing the praises of collaboration. They see the potential to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. Sadly, lived reality is often different. Resources and hopes are invested, and the shared effort falls short. Learn how to see, understand, and influence the conditions so shape successful collaborations in your team, organization, or community._

*--November 3rd, 2016*
*Your Unfolding Future: Plan in Uncertainty*
_Certainty and control frame thought and action in the global north and west. With these two assumptions, planning requires a clear goal, aligned resources, great communication, and frequent monitoring. These strategies are still necessary when certainty and control are in short supply, but they are not sufficient to prepare individuals and groups for unpredictable futures. Adaptive Planning—long-, medium-, and short-term—provides theory and practice for responsible planning, even when prediction and control are impossible. Learn this simple, robust method for planning in emergent environments._

*--December 1st, 2016*
*Personal Power to Design the Life You Want: Your Radical Inquiry*
_What is the pattern you want to create in your life? Who will you be to create this pattern? What is important to you that informs the pattern? How will you connect with others to make the pattern come to life? These key questions will set you on your own radical inquiry. You will discover your power to shape patterns for yourself and all your communities. This simple, creative process is easy to learn and simple to share with others. Come and harvest the power in your emerging patterns of possibility._

*--February 4th, 2016*
*Nothing is Intractable: Weaving Patterns of Possibility*
_Foundations and NGOs pursue goals that are global and systemic: feeding the world, sustaining the planet, bringing an end to violent conflict. Yet these challenges dwarf current philanthropic practices, which were developed to deal with tamer issues that had simpler boundaries, indicators, and relationships. Traditional problem-solving and decision-making practices are not sufficient for the wicked problems of today and tomorrow. Learn how to leverage the complexity and uncertainty of systems to weave options for action in the infinite game of philanthropy and service.

*--March 3rd, 2016*
*Act at the Edge: Lead in Complexity*
_Uncertainty is the only certainty in a leader’s life today. For themselves and their communities, leaders must stand at the edge of what they know, and reach into the emerging reality just beyond their current awareness. Gain new perspectives for navigating the uncharted territories of competition, developing human capital, innovation, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, emerging technologies, and productivity in unpredictable economic and political environments. Adaptive Action and Pattern Logic provide the foundation for your new insights.

*Heal the Hurt: The Sustainable Future of Health and Healthcare*
_Traditional paradigms of health and care have helped cure many ills and revealed others. The challenge of tomorrow is to take Adaptive Action to see and shift patterns of health disparities, lifestyle and chronic illness, end-of-life care, quality of life for frail elderly, and to address all these issues cost-effectively and sustainably. Join the workshop to hear stories of transformation that demonstrate a new paradigm and its potential to heal the hurt in systems of health and health care._

*--May 12th, 2016*
*Courage to Create: Build Adaptive Capacity for Continuous Innovation*
_In a world of surprise and rapid change, innovation becomes a survival strategy. Successful groups continually create new solutions to emerging challenges. When you can see patterns beyond your own bias and understand them from multiple perspectives, you are prepared to take courageous action to create the future you choose for yourself and others._

*One Answer is No Answer: Teaching as Learning*
_There are many great ideas for excellent teaching and learning. From communities of practice to problem-based learning, if you can imagine it, there is an instructional “solution” to match your view. The challenge is that none of these strategies is always the right fit. Each one is excellent for some topics, in some situations, with some learners, but none is fit for all. Explore universal questions that lead to specific answers for unique learners in complex environments. _

*Create the Path: A Guide to Shared Strategic Change*
_Change is changing. Change initiatives with pre-determined goals and predictable processes seldom get off the ground or crash soon after takeoff. We will offer an alternative that creates a path for change as you and your organization walk it. The disciplines of Adaptive Action and Pattern Logic help leverage the assets of the system and generate change that is flexible and sustainable. Build your adaptive capacity and create a unique and emerging path toward the change you envision._

*Your Unfolding Future: Plan in Uncertainty*
_Certainty and control frame thought and action in the global north and west. With these two assumptions, planning requires a clear goal, aligned resources, great communication, and frequent monitoring. These strategies are still necessary when certainty and control are in short supply, but they are not sufficient to prepare individuals and groups for unpredictable futures. Adaptive Planning—long-, medium-, and short-term—provides theory and practice for responsible planning, even when prediction and control are impossible. Learn this simple, robust method for planning in emergent environments._

*Nothing is Intractable: Weaving Patterns of Possibility*
_Foundations and NGOs pursue goals that are global and systemic: feeding the world, sustaining the planet, bringing an end to violent conflict. Yet these challenges dwarf current philanthropic practices, which were developed to deal with tamer issues that had simpler boundaries, indicators, and relationships. Traditional problem-solving and decision-making practices are not sufficient for the wicked problems of today and tomorrow. Learn how to leverage the complexity and uncertainty of systems to weave options for action in the infinite game of philanthropy and service.

Introduction to Human Systems Dynamics (Learning Unit #1)

by Royce Holladay

Welcome

Welcome

You are stepping into a learning journey that challenges more traditional approaches to understanding and navigating change. This unit of learning is designed to help you build the foundation of that journey. Engage with this work by standing in inquiry to look for opportunities to use HSD-based perspectives, models, and methods to move into deeper understanding and better informed action that changes the patterns of your life. We invite you to suspend your current ways of seeing the world, and step with us into a new view of how humans live, work, and play together.

We invite you to step into the learning by reviewing the following resources. They provide a window onto that new view and invite you to step into inquiry with us in this exploration of the dynamics of human systems. In each unit throughout this course, there will be a number of resources for your consideration and reflection. Each unit is presented in a page like this, with the links in the text and documents attached below. For each segment below, respond to the questions by posting on the REAL site and engaging with others with your questions, responses, and wonderings there.


First, let’s talk a bit about what HSD is all about:


The Altered Reality of HSD

Explore an alternative science and join an alternative practice to find breakthrough solutions to the most sticky issues. 19th Century theory and 20th Century practice keep us stuck in our 21st Century problems. Until we think about reality differently, we will not act differently. Until we act differently, we will not solve our most difficult problems. Step through the HSD looking glass to see in surprising ways, imagine innovations, and take Adaptive Action.

_What question comes up for you as you watch this live virtual workshop? How might you see that question play out in your work? Family? Community?_


Competencies for Organizational Practice (insert link to the articles)
In this article, Glenda explores the patterns of work and interaction that are shaped by the HSD Simple Rules. As you read the article, reflect on your own practice and what you have experienced in working with others.

_How is this the same or different from other approaches or competency lists you have seen and worked with in your career?_



References and Resources (insert link to the list)
HSD is built on a solid foundation of sciences that explore complex systems from a number of perspectives: math, biology, chemistry, thermodynamics, physics, are just a few of the sources for the basics of HSD. This list of References and Resources outlines some of the seminal work that informed Glenda's earliest explorations and continue to inform her work today.

_What do you see in the patterns of authors, topics, fields, and perspectives as you review this list?_



HSD Glossary (insert link to the glossary)
HSD requires some degree of rigor in the language we use. Ideas and concepts are defined here. Use this reference to help you clarify and step into the language of HSD.

_What surprises did you see in this glossary? What contradictions?_



HSD Paradigm Shift (insert link to the glossary)
While human systems dynamics offers a number of new tools, models, and methods for working with human systems, it is actually the foundation of a paradigm that can help us see and understand the world differently. This paper, written by the founder of the field, Glenda Eoyang, offers a powerful explanation of this world view. She generously invites us into her rigorous inquiry into the nature of the conditions that shape our worlds.

_How does this paper align with/or go against your world view? What questions does it raise for you?



HSD Certification Learning Plan
You can access this Word doc on the REAL site. It's intended to provide you with questions for your consideration as you contemplate your learning in the coming months. Don't think you have to answer the questions, just use them as a guide to help you find the focus of your learning and make the most of the time you have in this course. And here's the thing: This plan is only a plan. As you work through the learning and engage in the ongoing conversation with others in the cohort, you may want to shift your learning plan. Work with your Praxis Partner to continue to refine the path that's right for you. Thanks for joining us on this journey and let us know how we can help!

HSD Paradigm Shift (insert link to the glossary)
While human systems dynamics offers a number of new tools, models, and methods for working with human systems, it is actually the foundation of a paradigm that can help us see and understand the world differently. This paper, written by the founder of the field, Glenda Eoyang, offers a powerful explanation of this world view. She generously invites us into her rigorous inquiry into the nature of the conditions that shape our worlds.

Introduction to Human Systems Dynamics (Learning Unit #1)

by Royce Holladay
Welcome
You are stepping into a learning journey that challenges more traditional approaches to understanding and navigating change. This unit of learning is designed to help you build the foundation of that journey. Engage with this work by standing in inquiry to look for opportunities to use HSD-based perspectives, models, and methods to move into deeper understanding and better informed action that changes the patterns of your life. We invite you to suspend your current ways of seeing the world, and step with us into a new view of how humans live, work, and play together.

We invite you to step into the learning by reviewing the following resources. They provide a window onto that new view and invite you to step into inquiry with us in this exploration of the dynamics of human systems. In each unit throughout this course, there will be a number of resources for your consideration and reflection. Each unit is presented in a page like this, with the links in the text and documents attached below. For each segment below, respond to the questions by posting on the REAL site and engaging with others with your questions, responses, and wonderings there.

First, let's talk a bit about what HSD is all about:

The Altered Reality of HSD (insert link to the archive)
Explore an alternative science and join an alternative practice to find breakthrough solutions to the most sticky issues. 19th Century theory and 20th Century practice keep us stuck in our 21st Century problems. Until we think about reality differently, we will not act differently. Until we act differently, we will not solve our most difficult problems. Step through the HSD looking glass to see in surprising ways, imagine innovations, and take Adaptive Action.

The monthly live virtual workshops about the power of Human Systems Dynamics and Adaptive Action continue into 2016. Each month, Glenda Eoyang, founder of the field of HSD, shares insights and perspectives about applying HSD in a number of areas. Once each quarter we invite HSD Associates to share their work and insights about using Adaptive Action.

EVENT? — See the schedule below

TIMES? — All times are 11am – 12noon (Central Time) – Except the Quarterly Meetings in March, June, September, and December, which are scheduled to last 2 hours: 11am – 1pm (Central Time)

COST? — FREE

Registration? — For all sessions, "Register here.":http://www.adaptiveaction.org/Landing-Pages/Webinar-Registration

*--July, 2016 - No LVW Scheduled*

*--August 4th, 2016*
*Create the Path: A Guide to Shared Strategic Change*
_Change is changing. Change initiatives with pre-determined goals and predictable processes seldom get off the ground or crash soon after takeoff. We will offer an alternative that creates a path for change as you and your organization walk it. The disciplines of Adaptive Action and Pattern Logic help leverage the assets of the system and generate change that is flexible and sustainable. Build your adaptive capacity and create a unique and emerging path toward the change you envision._

*--September 1st, 2016*
*Divided We Fall: The Common Good Beyond Bureaucracy*
_Bureaucracy was an inspired invention, when government was out of control, and graft and corruption reigned supreme. Today, though, public policy innovation is strangled by the inertia of bureaucratic politics and regulations. The structures that generate silos of funding and function are barriers to innovation for the common good. On the other hand, powerful personal interests are eager to step in wherever government constraints are lifted. Explore how we can set conditions to guarantee work toward common goods without the waste and frustration of locked-in structures of governance._

Associates Quarterly Meeting, 11:00am - 12:30pm

*--October 6th, 2016*
*Greater Than the Sum of Their Parts: Collaborate for Community*
_Collaboration is easy to talk about—almost everyone does—but it is not so easy to do. Internally and externally, all groups sing the praises of collaboration. They see the potential to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. Sadly, lived reality is often different. Resources and hopes are invested, and the shared effort falls short. Learn how to see, understand, and influence the conditions so shape successful collaborations in your team, organization, or community._

*--November 3rd, 2016*
*Your Unfolding Future: Plan in Uncertainty*
_Certainty and control frame thought and action in the global north and west. With these two assumptions, planning requires a clear goal, aligned resources, great communication, and frequent monitoring. These strategies are still necessary when certainty and control are in short supply, but they are not sufficient to prepare individuals and groups for unpredictable futures. Adaptive Planning—long-, medium-, and short-term—provides theory and practice for responsible planning, even when prediction and control are impossible. Learn this simple, robust method for planning in emergent environments._
"Register here.":http://www.adaptiveaction.org/Landing-Pages/Webinar-Registration

*--December 1st, 2016*
*Personal Power to Design the Life You Want: Your Radical Inquiry*
_What is the pattern you want to create in your life? Who will you be to create this pattern? What is important to you that informs the pattern? How will you connect with others to make the pattern come to life? These key questions will set you on your own radical inquiry. You will discover your power to shape patterns for yourself and all your communities. This simple, creative process is easy to learn and simple to share with others. Come and harvest the power in your emerging patterns of possibility._

*Create the Path: A Guide to Shared Strategic Change*
_Change is changing. Change initiatives with pre-determined goals and predictable processes seldom get off the ground or crash soon after takeoff. We will offer an alternative that creates a path for change as you and your organization walk it. The disciplines of Adaptive Action and Pattern Logic help leverage the assets of the system and generate change that is flexible and sustainable. Build your adaptive capacity and create a unique and emerging path toward the change you envision._

*Divided We Fall: The Common Good Beyond Bureaucracy*
_Bureaucracy was an inspired invention, when government was out of control, and graft and corruption reigned supreme. Today, though, public policy innovation is strangled by the inertia of bureaucratic politics and regulations. The structures that generate silos of funding and function are barriers to innovation for the common good. On the other hand, powerful personal interests are eager to step in wherever government constraints are lifted. Explore how we can set conditions to guarantee work toward common goods without the waste and frustration of locked-in structures of governance._

*Greater Than the Sum of Their Parts: Collaborate for Community*
_Collaboration is easy to talk about—almost everyone does—but it is not so easy to do. Internally and externally, all groups sing the praises of collaboration. They see the potential to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. Sadly, lived reality is often different. Resources and hopes are invested, and the shared effort falls short. Learn how to see, understand, and influence the conditions so shape successful collaborations in your team, organization, or community._

*Your Unfolding Future: Plan in Uncertainty*
_Certainty and control frame thought and action in the global north and west. With these two assumptions, planning requires a clear goal, aligned resources, great communication, and frequent monitoring. These strategies are still necessary when certainty and control are in short supply, but they are not sufficient to prepare individuals and groups for unpredictable futures. Adaptive Planning—long-, medium-, and short-term—provides theory and practice for responsible planning, even when prediction and control are impossible. Learn this simple, robust method for planning in emergent environments._

*Personal Power to Design the Life You Want: Your Radical Inquiry*
_What is the pattern you want to create in your life? Who will you be to create this pattern? What is important to you that informs the pattern? How will you connect with others to make the pattern come to life? These key questions will set you on your own radical inquiry. You will discover your power to shape patterns for yourself and all your communities. This simple, creative process is easy to learn and simple to share with others. Come and harvest the power in your emerging patterns of possibility._

Traditional problem-solving and decision-making practices are not sufficient for the wicked problems of today and tomorrow. Learn how to leverage the complexity and uncertainty of systems to weave options for action in the infinite game of philanthropy and service.

*Act at the Edge: Lead in Complexity*
_Uncertainty is the only certainty in a leader’s life today. For themselves and their communities, leaders must stand at the edge of what they know, and reach into the emerging reality just beyond their current awareness. Gain new perspectives for navigating the uncharted territories of competition, developing human capital, innovation, corporate social responsibility, sustainability, emerging technologies, and productivity in unpredictable economic and political environments. Adaptive Action and Pattern Logic provide the foundation for your new insights.

*Heal the Hurt: The Sustainable Future of Health and Healthcare*
_Traditional paradigms of health and care have helped cure many ills and revealed others. The challenge of tomorrow is to take Adaptive Action to see and shift patterns of health disparities, lifestyle and chronic illness, end-of-life care, quality of life for frail elderly, and to address all these issues cost-effectively and sustainably. Join the workshop to hear stories of transformation that demonstrate a new paradigm and its potential to heal the hurt in systems of health and health care._

*Courage to Create: Build Adaptive Capacity for Continuous Innovation*

*One Answer is No Answer: Teaching as Learning*
_There are many great ideas for excellent teaching and learning. From communities of practice to problem-based learning, if you can imagine it, there is an instructional “solution” to match your view. The challenge is that none of these strategies is always the right fit. Each one is excellent for some topics, in some situations, with some learners, but none is fit for all. Explore universal questions that lead to specific answers for unique learners in complex environments. _

*Create the Path: A Guide to Shared Strategic Change*
_Change is changing. Change initiatives with pre-determined goals and predictable processes seldom get off the ground or crash soon after takeoff. We will offer an alternative that creates a path for change as you and your organization walk it. The disciplines of Adaptive Action and Pattern Logic help leverage the assets of the system and generate change that is flexible and sustainable. Build your adaptive capacity and create a unique and emerging path toward the change you envision._

*Divided We Fall: The Common Good Beyond Bureaucracy*
_Bureaucracy was an inspired invention, when government was out of control, and graft and corruption reigned supreme. Today, though, public policy innovation is strangled by the inertia of bureaucratic politics and regulations. The structures that generate silos of funding and function are barriers to innovation for the common good. On the other hand, powerful personal interests are eager to step in wherever government constraints are lifted. Explore how we can set conditions to guarantee work toward common goods without the waste and frustration of locked-in structures of governance._

*Greater Than the Sum of Their Parts: Collaborate for Community*
_Collaboration is easy to talk about—almost everyone does—but it is not so easy to do. Internally and externally, all groups sing the praises of collaboration. They see the potential to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts. Sadly, lived reality is often different. Resources and hopes are invested, and the shared effort falls short. Learn how to see, understand, and influence the conditions so shape successful collaborations in your team, organization, or community._

*Your Unfolding Future: Plan in Uncertainty*
_Certainty and control frame thought and action in the global north and west. With these two assumptions, planning requires a clear goal, aligned resources, great communication, and frequent monitoring. These strategies are still necessary when certainty and control are in short supply, but they are not sufficient to prepare individuals and groups for unpredictable futures. Adaptive Planning—long-, medium-, and short-term—provides theory and practice for responsible planning, even when prediction and control are impossible. Learn this simple, robust method for planning in emergent environments._

*Personal Power to Design the Life You Want: Your Radical Inquiry*
_What is the pattern you want to create in your life? Who will you be to create this pattern? What is important to you that informs the pattern? How will you connect with others to make the pattern come to life? These key questions will set you on your own radical inquiry. You will discover your power to shape patterns for yourself and all your communities. This simple, creative process is easy to learn and simple to share with others. Come and harvest the power in your emerging patterns of possibility._
