In their new book “Complexity Works! Influencing Pattern-Based Change in Teams and Organizations,” Denise Easton and Lawrence Solow, introduce the Complexity Space Framework, complexity-inspired processes, insights and language that offer organizations an adaptive approach to understanding and responding to change. Using a different set of lenses, their “Red Lens” and “Blue Lens” Paradigms help organizational change agents develop a three dimensional view that encompasses the best of the past, the realities of the present and hope for the future. Join this dynamic discussion!
