Theory U and Complexity

Course Description

Through the lenses of Theory U and Complexity Theory this hands-on course will give you a framework, a set of skills and capacities to intervene more effectively in complex social challenges such as poverty, malnutrition, climate change.

Participants will be presented to a real world challenge where we will go through the U Process for intervening in the system.

Since it emerged around 2006 at Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Otto Scharmer, Joseph Jaworski and others, Theory U has come to be understood in three primary ways:

  1. as a framework;
  2. as a method for leading profound change;
  3. as a way of being – connecting to the more authentic of higher aspects of our Selves.

In this course we will deepen into Theory U and some branches of Complexity Theory to understand how we keep collectively producing results nobody wants in a systemic level. We will use the framework, method (U Process) and the way of being of Theory U to move from ego system economies to eco system economies.
