Influencing systems can be challenging and confusing (and sometimes seem impossible). It’s helpful to be able to recognize patterns of behavior in human systems that occur again and again in various settings. Once we see the patterns (archetypes) and their underlying structures and understand how they function, we are better prepared to determine which actions to take (interventions) to influence the system toward our desired results. In this workshop, we’ll discuss several systems archetypes and possible interventions and their potential for success.
In this workshop, led by Donna Mellen, EdD, Professor in the Department of Management, we’ll discuss several systems archetypes and possible interventions and their potential for success. In the MBA in Sustainability program, Donna focuses on developing the human side of organizations that are successful, productive, humane, and socially and environmentally responsible. She currently teaches Teamwork & Diversity, Developing People & Performance, and Strategy, Innovation & Resilience.
