Next practices and staying flexible

Last week I was talking to a customer from a large airline company and we discussed business improvisation as a way to develop new best practices for organizations. We had an interesting conversation if creating next practices would be more interesting?

Throwaway planning in a training context

If things only would be simple, we could plan our way into the future and work out the way we predicted…

Most processes where people are involved have some “universal laws”, but are chaotic at the same time. My experience is that it’s all about paradoxes and you’re missing out on something when things seem simple. “Improvisers can up their odds by “practicing” with paradoxes and thereby prepare themselves, tactically and emotionally, to improvise when the stakes are raised.” (Mirvis, 1998). How does this work out in giving leadership trainings? How can you develop a program in a unpredictable environment?

Improvising with models

What is the relation between improvisational leadership and excisting models like theory U and Situational Leaderschip?
