Leading in Complex Times – Dialogues

Change has become the norm for individuals and organizations of all sorts. Technology, science and nature are constantly introducing shifts in the way we conceive and approach democracy, the way we do business, the way we organize our cities, our communities. Transformation goes beyond going digital. Our political and business models face challenges never seen before.

With this series of Dialogues, IE University across its five schools – IE Business School, IE Law School, IE Global and Public Affairs, IE School of Human Sciences and Technology, IE School of Architecture and Design – offers an interdisciplinary perspective to understand these complex and changing times while providing practical insights for our organizations and for ourselves.
