Watch Full Video Of Successful Program Management: Complexity Theory, Communication, and Leadership.Complexity theory - which teaches that total order does not allow for enough flexibility - has become a new area of potential in the field of management. Not surprisingly, program management (which emphasizes rules and hierarchy) has tended to be resistant to these concepts. As a result, there is very little material that would help practicing program managers in the area of leveraging complex communications. In this webinar, Wanda and Robert will address this problem and share with you practical tips on how to use complexity theory to manage and lead the communication
effort on programs.
