The web is increasingly complex and dynamic. In the natural realm, 'complex adaptive systems' allow for flux and change in tumultuous environments. Our December speaker will draw on these models to illustrate how modern organizations can decide and move quickly.
Mike Arauz will share how leading tech and product organizations are not simply adapting to increased change, but innovating and thriving in these dynamic environments by:
* operating around networks vs hierarchies
* distributing authority
* processing information effectively
* embracing structured and facilitated methods for collecting feedback and gaining consent on group action.
