VIII NIS International Conference, 27-28 October 2016: Workshop

Transcending limits: Managing change in a VUCA world

Workshop participants will explore some of the knowledge, mechanisms and forces required to manage change in a Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA) world. A diverse knowledge base is central to (a) testing assumptions, (b) building and implementing transparent, results-based plans that are supported by stakeholders, and (c) building a work culture that can identify and address obstacles to change. This knowledge base includes, an understanding of change management models, of the nature of thinking and of how to overcome resistance to change. Remarkably in many change processes key knowledge is often ignored. Instead, forces such as a belief in the ‘right way’ to proceed can drive change. Other forces such as a lack of trust can become an insurmountable obstacle to change. Mechanisms are also key to managing change, be those professional development programmes or financing of local change initiatives. But mechanisms are never enough for building an effective education system. It will be argued during the workshop that over-stressing the importance of mechanisms over forces is likely to have negative consequences. Forces are often more powerful than any one mechanism and as such need to be carefully identified and managed to ensure that mechanisms operate as intended.
