The Sensemaking meetup is Systems Change Finland’s monthly meetup where we explore topics related to applied Systems Thinking and Complexity with interesting speakers. Instead of being one-sided lectures, our meetups are spaces where participants can also make sense about the topics with each other.
In June’s meetup on Tuesday 1.6.2021 17:00-18:30 EEST UTC+3 (16-18:30 CET, 15-17:30 UK) the discussion will be ignited by Benjamin Taylor from the UK who will be speaking about Systems Thinking capacity building and how to use systems approaches in consulting.
Benjamin has been involved in building the Systems Thinking practitioner community in many ways. The Public Service Transformation Academy (https://www.publicservicetransformation.org) social enterprise that he is the Chief Executive of provides training and capacity building for transformation. In this context and in the professional body Benjamin has been part of defining a Systems Thinking Practitioner job competency framework, qualification, and post-graduate Apprenticeship, which he will introduce in the meetup. You can read more about the apprenticeship standard here: https://www.instituteforapprenticeships.org/apprenticeship-standards/systems-thinking-practitioner/
He also runs his own ‘tool shed’!
Benjamin is also the Managing Partner of RedQuadrant (https://www.redquadrant.com) where he does public service consulting using systems approaches. In the meetup he will speak about how he has used systems approaches in his consulting work.
