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.
