We live in two worlds, one created by nature, the other built by humans. In the first, nature displays its infinite ability to create organization at all levels, from crystals to plants to living organisms, and its amazing capacity to innovate and adapt, demonstrated through the 3.5 billion years of its history. In the human world, many organizations and systems we have created - such as in healthcare, education, business and government - feel rigid, inefficient, and incapable of delivering what we want. Inside those organizations, whether private or public, many people at all levels remain dissatisfied with their working environment, and contribute well below their potential. The standard solutions treat only the symptoms of the problem: change the boss, spend more money, introduce a new program, reorganize.

One of the central aims of Plexus Institute is to connect and support people who believe that advancements in complexity science offer an important opportunity to improve the health and well being of people, families, communities, organizations and the environment. As such, Plexus Institute seeks to be an inclusive, welcoming community that encourages collaborative learning and research, fosters new relationships among people and organizations who believe in the mission of the Institute, and supports those seeking to understand living systems at a deeper level with the aim of using these insights to improve the health, vitality, and well being of living systems of all types.
