This is a repeat - command performance - of Jim's earlier pod cast on complexity and organizations. So many people have asked to listen to this one again. I decided to repeat the post. Enjoy! Safety, Human Performance and High Reliability have never sounded better as a response to complex organizations.
Jim Barker has some great ideas about complexity and organizations. Dr. Barker is on the leadership faculty at Dalhousie University and spends his time thinking about how organizations function in complex operational environments. This conversation will both change your thinking and prepare you with ways to move further in understanding and managing workers in complex operations. This conversation is the beginning of what I hope is many more conversations about "the motion of complexity." Listen carefully to Jim's comments about workers knowing what to do now - and how the now is not the past or the future. This is a great podcast.
