SIG Chair: Leadership and Systemic Innovation
The LaSI SIG focuses on the formal area of research related to the theme of systemic innovation. As a place where change leaders and change makers team up with systems scientists to co-create impactful innovations, it aims to catalyze action and facilitate future projects (concrete and virtual). LaSI serves as a testbed for exploring how systemic insights directly influence systemic change. Of particular interest are explorations that relate to the question, “What are the systemic leverage points and systemic nurturance spaces that foster the emergence of innovations for thrivability?”
The LaSI SIG serves as an action lab where we explore ways of curating spaces for systemic planetary thrivability at local and global (aka ‘glocal’) levels. We believe the essence of a transformative approach to prevalent societal problems can best be addressed when we operate as an Evolutionary Learning Community (ELC). As an ELC, the LaSI SIG is itself a learning environment where people can learn together about the interconnected nature of our world, the ecological impact of our individual and collective choices, and the joy of finding a meaningful way to contribute to the emergence of sustainable and evolutionary futures. In contrast to other SIGs, this SIG aims to do more than simply “explore”. It aims to catalyze action and facilitate future projects (concrete and virtual). We are evolving the LaSI SIG as a place where change leaders and change makers team up with systems scientists to co-create impactful innovations. That is, as a place where systemic insights directly influence systemic change. Of particular interest are explorations that relate to the question, “What are the systemic leverage points and systemic nurturance spaces that foster the emergence of innovations for thrivability?” The objectives of the LaSI SIG are to explore new methods, models and means of emerging an ecosystem of R&D+i (research and development plus innovation) in the generation of socio-technical solutions that are synergetic with each other (thereby forming a collective incubator based on the application of collective intelligence). The emergence of such an innovation ecosystem requires leadership and systemic innovation that incorporates social values, technological creativity, economic opportunity and environmental integrity. LaSI welcomes exploration of themes focused on innovation, leadership, connective intelligence, collective intelligence, collective creativity, design thinking, systems practice, entrepreneurial experimentation and other related considerations.
