Dr. Catharine Hobbs, Systemic Leadership for Local Governance
oktober 21, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Following her career of 30 years in local government, Dr. Catherine Hobbs is well aware of what she describes as ‘the generic challenges of local government reform’. These she sets out in terms of the context of reform, common themes, and perceived barriers to reform. The way forward, she believes, is to reject the mechanistic mindset that created many of the problems and to address the complexity that exists with the help of ‘a sophisticated, high variety, exploratory systemic approach’. Local government has thrown up a huge demand for new ways of thinking and acting. Systems thinking can provide a supply of different systems approaches which, marshalled by critical systems thinking (CST), can meet that demand. It is just a matter of bringing supply and demand together and it is that purpose that the book hopes to fulfil.
