T-groups and Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS)
When I was doing my executive PGD in TISS-CSOL on OD and change, we had credit courses on Complex Adaptive Systems and Human Interaction Labs (aka T-groups), two very essential topics to OD. We were also asked to write reflection papers on Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) and Human Interaction Labs. When I sat down to write them, I realised one is connected to the other and ended up writing about how Labs are in fact Complex Adaptive Systems. If you want to understand CAS, I think a good place to start with could be T-groups and probably the other way round too. Given the complexity of both the systems, the points I have presented here may be experienced differently by different people. And these are only my initial thoughts. Welcome your thoughts.
