Overview

Innovation diffusion has been argued to be a Complex Adaptive System (CAS) and this book presents how Singapore educational leaders learn to develop a CAS perspective on innovation diffusion. By examining four cases, Learning of Innovation Diffusion for Educational Leaders presents the common patterns on how education leaders conceptualise and develop various knowledge elements and eventually construct a CAS understanding on innovation diffusion. The book also presents how learning activities, such as model building, analogical reasoning and playing simulation games, enable the conceptualisation and development of various knowledge elements in the process of learning. While there are books that describe organisations as CASs, this monograph is perhaps the first one that is dedicated to examining strategies that help leaders learn CAS. In particular, the case studies presented share how the learning of CAS is effectively facilitated through analogical reasoning, a strategy that is relatively novel for the learning of CAS.
