The Black Box: an unconventional way of thinking, acting, living.

3 EPISODES   |  LANGUAGE: ENGLISH

Series Overview

The Black Box is not a tool or a strategy. It is a vision of the human being that applies to people and their dynamics, within the systems in which people live and act. Those who adopt it enter into an order of thinking that requires the suspension of judgement that usually permeates human dynamics.

Placed in the organizational world, the Black Box is a managerial challenge, a model of unconventional thinking that opens to a critical vision and allows the unfolding of new managerial possibilities, in both theoretical and applicative terms.

In this series you will be able to observe the elements that constitute it, the mechanics that animate it, the dynamics of its application, and you will have the concrete possibility to explore territories where other approaches normally don’t enter into.

But beware: to enter the Black Box requires a great ability to deal with risk and uncertainty, be available to deal with provocation and a certain dose of lightness. Together with the ability to suspend the research for a final definite answer that normally permeates organizational dynamics.

Luciano Traquandi and Elisa Conti will accompany us into the universe of the Black Box, to train our thinking to look at reality with new eyes, and thus imagine new possibilities, to bring as a precious dowry in our work as well as in our life.

Who should join us

All those who act in organizations, consultants and scholars and people curious about human dynamics in organizations.
