KSU Next Society Institute launched “Tool Factory” meeting

On June 7–10, researchers from Kazimieras Simonavicius University (KSU) Next Society Institute held a meeting in Vilnius.

The main purpose of this meeting was to bring together management researchers and consultants in a bid to kick-start the NSI management tool factory, that is, a sub-unit or process of NSI devoted to the translation of systems theoretical ideas into hands-on organizational and management consulting tools.

On June 7, the KSU Next Society Institute held the discussion Next2Next, which took place in the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania. The leaders of the Next Society Institute, Steffen Roth and Lars Clausen, together with invited guests Dovilė Gaižauskienė (Senior Policy Analyst at the Government Strategic Analysis Center of Lithuania), Denis Chichmaryov (Country Head for EPAM Lithuania and EPAM Latvia), and Clement Le Bechennec (Global Sales Director at Teltonika Energy), discussed synergies between theoretical approaches and business.

The final day of the meeting was devoted to developing the concept and preparing for the NSI Forum, which is taking place in the autumn of this year.

The Next Society Institute was established at KSU in 2021. It advances social systems theory in the tradition of Niklas Luhmann and explores synergies with alternative schools of systems theory. More about the Next Society Institute: https://next.ksu.lt
