"Enabling Fluid Organizations" | Sonja Blignaut, founder at More Beyond

In today’s complex world, adaptive capacity is critical to organisational success. Organisations need to be responsive to internal and external contexts that are continually in flux. Old management paradigms and organisational structures cannot enable the organisational fluidity that is required. In this talk we will explore what we can learn from the natural world, and in particular complex adaptive systems to enable organisational fluidity and resilience.
