MBA Community Meeting Forum – Influencing Systems: Archetypes and Interventions
Feb 13 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

mellendonna-150x200Influencing 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.

You can learn more about Systems archetypes and interventions by reading Applying Systems Thinking and Common Archetypes to Organizational Issues at Isee Systems and Systems Archetypes and Their Application from Saybrook University.

MBA Community Meeting Forum – Sustainability in the “Gig” Economy
Mar 5 @ 8:30 am – 10:30 am

billbaueAs we continue transitioning into a more distributed, networked economy, work increasingly shifts toward “portfolio careers” or the “gig” economy, where consultants (and even salaried employees) juggle a host of projects in collaborative partnerships that cross organizational and geographic borders utilizing traditional tools and emerging technologies.

The gig economy has been defined as a labor trend that started to emerge after the Great Recession in which more Americans are making more of their livelihoods through some form of freelance or contract work. During this workshop, Corporate Sustainability Architect, Bill Baue, will share his diversity of experience advancing sustainability with the ThriveAbility Foundation, Sustainability Context Group, and Convetit, gigging for the likes of UNEP, Harvard, Ceres, Audubon, etc.
