Abstract

Interactive Management (IM) is a methodology invented to manage complexity. It is intended to help organizations cope with situations beyond their normal scope of work. The main elements of IM to be considered are people, facilitation team, consensus methodologies, support technology, and design environment (demosophia facility). A major contribution of IM is the way it integrates the key elements in a system to create a deep understanding of the situation under analysis based on a guided effort of collaboration and commitment to plan effective actions, and with it, address complex problems. It is the intention of this paper to present the IM methodology: its processes, its outcomes, its origins and a case study conducted in Mexico.
