Prof. Eve Mitleton-Kelly is founder and Director of the Complexity Research Programme at the London School of Economics; visiting Professor at the Open University; Member of Scientific Advisory Board to the ‘Next Generation Infrastructures Foundation’, Delft University of Technology; was Coordinator of Links with Business, Industry and Government of the European Complex Systems Network of Excellence, Exystence (2003-2006); Member of ONCE-CS Coordinating Action on Complex Systems; Executive Co-ordinator of SOL-UK (London) (Society for Organizational Learning); and Advisor to European and USA organisations. EMK’s recent work has concentrated on the implications of the theories of complexity for organizations and specifically on strategy and policy development and on the creation of enabling environments to facilitate the reduction of problems associated with IT legacy systems (2 EPSRC awards under the SEBPC programme); on identifying initial requirements and inter-organisational relationships in the supply chain (EPSRC collaborative project with the aerospace industry); on organisational (e.g. post M&A) integration (EPSRC project under the Systems Integration Initiative); sustainable development in communities, organizational learning, the emergence of new organizational forms, the ‘design’ of organizations, co-evolutionary sustainability, diversity and corporate governance, art and complexity. She has developed a theory of complex social systems and an integrated methodology using both qualitative and quantitative tools and methods. The theory is being used for teaching at universities around the world, including at an EPSRC short course at LSE, to train researchers. She has edited a volume and written on complexity. Publications and the work of the LSE Complexity Group are at www.lse.ac.uk/complexity
Her first career between 1967-83, was with the British Civil Service in the Department of Trade and Industry, where she was involved in the formulation of policy and the negotiation of EU Directives.
