Master Class: Navigating Complexity with Strategic Design and Management

With Jeongki Lim

As the market evolves at an unprecedented rate, the world seems too complex to allow us to make correct decisions. Yet complex phenomena have always been with us, in both our natural and our artificial environments. In this interdisciplinary seminar, we examine fundamental concepts around emergence, chaos, self-organization, and creativity and explore applications in everyday decision making for both immediate value creation and sustainable growth.
