Organizational Complexity and Public Administration Education: Combining Social Proceses, Experiences and Complexity Theory in Teaching
Hanna Vakkala PhD, Dr. Jari Stenvall, Dr. Antti Syväjärvi,
University of Lapland,
In this paper human beings are seen to be engaged on local conversational interactions
and power relations, which create complexity for actions and organizational reality. The
social process effects how people interpret and learn from their experiences, and their
experiences effect on the social environment due to circular causality (Weick 1979;
1995). These factors raise a strong requirement for new approaches to teach in public
management education. First we bring up some views of organizational reality and
complex social processes, and describe the tested teaching method. After this we
discuss the experiences and findings made during the course.
