Next webinar: Measuring Impact when Addressing Wicked Problems
Thursday July 25th 2017 2 pm ACST
Presented as part of Australian Government Public Sector Innovation Month
It is increasingly recognised that place-based ecosystem approaches are required to address wicked problems. But how do you measure impact when you use such an approach? After discussing the problem of attribution (how do you attribute a result to a specific intervention and not to other interventions or factors), this webinar will introduce a Matrix that aids performance measurement decision making.

This session will be recorded for those that can't make the live event.

Understanding Wicked Problems
Watch this webinar and learn about the characteristics of complex (wicked) problems in their environment and understand the different types of problems that communities face.
The wicked problem of food insecurity
In this webinar we discuss the effectiveness of traditional approaches to food insecurity and demonstrate that food insecurity is a wicked problem which needs to be addressed holistically. The webinar will discuss that as a wicked problem, food insecurity needs to be addressed by taking a systemic approach and that this approach requires an understanding of complexity theory.
Complexity Science and Community Capacity Building
