Join us for a rich conversation about organizational ecosystems!

Traditional business practices and change initiatives are being influenced and altered by a new breed of people driven organizational ecosystems that look, feel and operate as complex adaptive systems -- never static, never linear and always emerging. In this session, participants will understand how to recognize, influence and integrate these ecosystems for engagement, innovation and growth. A continually shifting organizational landscape requires a deeper understanding of how the people -- as individuals and in groups and organizations function as complex, unpredictable, pattern-based agents instead of predictable well oiled machines. This session will provide frameworks and tools that offer new possibilities for action within these powerful ecosystems.

Our guest will be Denise Easton. Denise is an entrepreneur, consultant and CEO with a passion for product innovation, business management, organization strategy and development. She has worked extensively across the corporate, public, education and non-profit industry/domains, and brings multi industry experience and expertise in business management and product development, network/knowledge systems, strategic innovation, and complexity science (human systems dynamics). In 1999 Denise founded and continues to serve as CEO of ULiveandLearn, a leading knowledge management firm focused on the design, development, production and strategic integration of digital knowledge and learning ecologies for organizations. She served as the section co-editor and multi-media editor for the international peer-reviewed academic e-journal Innovate. Denise has published extensively, most recently in the International Conference of Complexity Science 2011 proceedings.
