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.

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.

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.

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. _

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.
