Wicked Problems and the Complex World
The modern world is fast paced and dynamic, and approaches that used to work for us don’t work anymore. Some issues are just too complex, too subject to unpredictable influences, how can leaders ensure these issues are addressed effectively?
Wicked Problems and the Complex World course will examine the complex and ambiguous world that we live and work in, and practice developing effective responses to these challenging situations. This course if from our Leadership & Management series. At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
This course is suitable for current leaders, board members, senior executives, senior managers, line managers with challenging teams and anyone who aspires to take on a leadership role. This is especially useful for those tasked with leading complex cross-cutting projects.
Participants will be able to recognise the nature of their own ‘wicked’ challenges and apply techniques to inspire, engage motivate and lead others when the way ahead is unclear.
Go above and beyond your training with new collaborative resources from our partnership with Kogan Page, an award-winning independent publisher of business books and content.
