Engineering Management Excellence: Deep Systems Thinking for the Future of Europe
Keep following us for more information
Larry is convinced that excellent systems management results from an intuitive understanding of the profound role of human values in organisations, as well as a deep appreciation of the local context in which technologies are deployed. On the other hand, a poor understanding of how human systems, especially values and culture, interplay with technology development, results in toxic organisational cultures and, in some cases, complete systemic collapse with dramatic results. The summer academy will focus upon deep, underlying aspects of organisational culture and leadership. Most of all it will answer the questions ’’What is your unique potential’’ and ’’How will you deliver excellence’’.
