The Master in Leadership and Innovation in Complex Systems (LAICS) is an Executive Master offered as a collaboration between the Department of Education at Aarhus University and Copenhagen Business School (CBS). The LAICS Master is targeted at organisation leaders, senior project leaders, and key specialists working with innovation and business development within both the public and private sectors. The programme focuses on how to create and lead innovation in complex systems, and centres on innovation and leadership from a ‘real-world’, practice-based and social skills perspective.

This book is about innovation and leadership – as it unfolds in our everyday lives. Each of the sixteen tales of innovation in this book describes the methods, the reflections and the practice of a group of ambitious leaders who wanted more than “just” manage their current businesses. The book tells the story of how each leader found his or her own way to experiment with creating a different future – big or small. For their employees. For their organisations, and for themselves.

The complexity of everyday organisational life makes the analogy of the shark-taled goldfish on the book cover useful. If we want to take it upon ourselves as leaders, to find new and more valuable ways of doing “our leadership business”, then we must dare to experiment with the tools at hand. And if one of those “tools” is a shark tale, why not try it out and see where it takes you?

The world needs authentic, innovative leaders, who can navigate in complexity and make wise decisions.

 

 

LAICS Master degree

As the program director of the executive master education LAICS, Leadership and Innovation in Complex Systems, I am dedicated to teach people how to do this. However, during the 8 years of teaching on LAICS I have come to realise that it is not a simple matter of teaching, but rather a more complex matter of creating the optimal context for reflecting and learning. Therefore, the participants are invited to engage in a learning journey that does not end, a life-long journey that does not stop when people receive their LAICS Master degree, but continues for the rest of their life, hopefully.

Leadership and Innovation

A journey has a destination. In this case that would be a master thesis and a master degree in Leadership and Innovation. But the true value lies in the journey itself, a journey into the universe of innovation with all its theories, models and tools, and a journey through the vast landscape of leadership using artful approaches that help people explore, reflect and learn through theories, processes and practice.

Education

An additional value for the participants, perhaps the most important quality of the education, is that they become deeply involved in a community of innovators and searchers, who want to create inspirational approaches and new possibilities for meeting the challenges of their organisations.
