Location: CNIB 15 Colonel Baker Pl NE, Calgary

Tickets ($25+GST):

Join Mark Kozak-Holland, author of Titanic Lessons for IT Projects, and Ken Low of the Human Venture Institute for a discussion on the role of history, science, technology, innovation and the human spirit in bringing major human endeavors to life.

Mark Kozak-Holland’s work focuses on the role of history to inform innovation in project management.  His work links the fields of science, technology, engineering, leadership & innovation to the discipline of project management. As a result, he has developed the “lessons-from-history” series, ( , “using lessons from the past to assist projects of today in shaping the world of tomorrow”.   His work recognizes the importance of understanding history in order to shape innovative, systemic-level approaches to development.  Case studies include: the Titanic, the leadership of Winston Churchill, the Trans-continental railroad, the Great Escape, amongst others.

Ken Low is the founder and president of the Action Studies Institute [est. 1983] dedicated to mapping out the dynamics of adaptive intelligence in human systems and pioneering the development of a new discipline; human learning ecology. The driving motivation behind this research is the need to understand the underlying causes of adaptive and maladaptive development and behavior in individuals, organizations, societies, and cultures. The research draws on successes and failures of human learning and activity across cultures, sectors, disciplines and periods of history. The patterns of emerging adaptive intelligence found in the human story provide a structure for the human venture, a disciplined framework for understanding human progress, folly and resistance, including the systemic adaptive challenges facing humanity at our time and place in history, and what it will take to meet them.
