Working in complex practice spaces: Focusing and calibrating professional effort in organisations and communities

Nita Cherry, Joy Higgs

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)

    Abstract

    There is no doubt that the spaces in which contemporary professional practice is enacted are inherently complex. These spaces hold in tension the practice requirements of being human and technical, discipline-framed as well as interdisciplinary, client-centred yet professionally “managed”, particularised for client and setting but held to evidence-based standards, and priceless in benefit but constrained by cost-efficiency imperatives.
