Emergent Communities of Practice: A Complexity Theory Lens
Keywords:Complexity Theory, Second Track, Community of Practice
Second Track processes are an emerging type of community of practice (CoP) that offer a powerful way to generate innovative solutions to wicked problems. The core research team behind BESS proposes a theoretical framework to understand Second Track processes by approaching them as complex adaptive systems in terms of organisation (complexity), interaction (social) and thinking (intelligence).
