Change, interdependence and transformation

The Emergent Strategy Ideation Institute is a hub to experiment, think, facilitate, learn and share emergent strategy.

Emergent strategy speaks to practices, responses, visions and plans that embrace complexity and change, interdependence and transformation. It is a noticed strategy, present in the natural world, present in how we humans long to interact with each other. It is both ancient and constant. Humans have socialized away from it, trying to implement strategy in a way that indicates we have more control than we do and that assumes time and change are linear, foreseeable processes.

Emergent strategy is a humble philosophy, a way to acknowledge the real power of change, and be in right relationship to it. In addition to approaching facilitation from an adaptive approach that empowers the participants to guide and deepen the work, we use science fiction as a tool to practice strengthening our imaginations, our capacity to think beyond the limitations of our socialization - beyond competition, beyond binaries, beyond linear, short-term outcomes.
