The Value Web was very proud to have the Intervening in Complex Systems report published by the World Economic Forum at Davos this year.
The report was a culmination of a yearlong collaboration with the WEF’s Young Global Leaders community to take a systems view of global issues and to use collaborative mapping techniques as a platform for discussion around where leaders could best intervene.
The initiative involved over 300 leaders from across the world in business, government and civil society, getting perspectives on leading issues in everything from the rule of law to resources and energy. As a collaborative process, it was also a large-scale experiment in how to drive substantive dialogue down to root causes in a fast paced, open, conferencing environment. The complex process of mapping non-linear cause and effect from a blend of influences in the complex systems field was designed into a series of fast-paced, self-facilitated exercises, with the results captured, designed and iterated in-conference in order to get the results from conversation to narrative.
Both as a process of deriving insight from gathered leaders and as a snapshot of insights from across global domains, we are proud of the results in developing a more systemic, connected view of global issues.
