Chapter 9: Inner complexity: using Landscape of the Mind to catalyse change in organisations

Kate Hopkinson


Most social science research applying complexity principles concentrates on the complexity of the external world. There has been relatively little work on the inner complexity of human beings, and how this influences their behaviour in the world. This chapter introduces a visual methodology called Landscape of the Mind (referred to as LoM), which is designed to focus on these issues. Case studies and examples are given to illustrate its practical applications and show how it can be used to catalyse change in organisations, with particular reference to the implications for leadership and innovation.
