Glenda Eoyang

Glenda Eoyang helps people thrive in the face of overwhelming complexity and   uncertainty. She is a pioneer  in  the  applications  of  complexity  science  to  human systems, and she founded the field  of  human  systems  dynamics  (HSD).  Through  the HSD Institute, Glenda uses her models and methods to help others  see  patterns  in  the chaos that surrounds them, understand the  patterns  in  simple  and  powerful  ways,  and take practical steps to shift chaos toward coherence. Her clients include the  Finnish Research Institute (VTT), US EPA, BC Canada Ministry of Health, Oxfam International, Yukon Territorial Government, Association for Medical Education in Europe, and Catholic Charities. Glenda received her doctorate in HSD from Union Institute and University in 2001, where she discovered three fundamental factors that influence the dynamics of self-organizing change.

Glenda’s latest book is Adaptive Action: Leveraging Uncertainty in Your Organization. It is a roadmap for anyone who  chooses to work  at the intersection  of order and chaos.
