Within the overall framework of the organization’s strategy on OA, the recent launch of OA curricula for Researchers and Library Schools by UNESCO highlights its efforts for enhancing capacities to deal with Open Access issues. The carefully designed and developed sets of OA curricula for researchers and library and information professionals are based on two needs assessment surveys, and several rounds of face-to-face and online consultations with relevant stakeholders.

Behavior of early warnings near the critical temperature in the two-dimensional Ising model

Among the properties that are common to complex systems, the presence of critical thresholds in the dynamics of the system is one of the most important. Recently, there has been interest in the universalities that occur in the behavior of systems near critical points. These universal properties make it possible to estimate how far a system is from a critical threshold. Several early-warning signals have been reported in time series representing systems near catastrophic shifts. The proper understanding of these early-warnings may allow the prediction and perhaps control of these dramatic shifts in a wide variety of systems. In this paper we analyze this universal behavior for a system that is a paradigm of phase transitions, the Ising model. We study the behavior of the early-warning signals and the way the temporal correlations of the system increase when the system is near the critical point.

Identifying and Acting on Early Warning Signs in Complex Projects

While some project managers may experience a "gut feeling" about impending problems during a complex project, most acknowledge that they're not very good at detecting or acting on these early warning signs.

Interesting iceberg representation of organisation culture

Expressworks International's curator insight, March 16, 5:26 PM

At an industry conference this week attendees agreed that one of the issues that concerns them most is culture. This is not a surprising outcome since the industry has seen the entrance of many other competitors and a disruption to business as usual. 

 

Using the iceberg model we can illustrate why complex change like cultural transformation is so difficult. There is widespread knowledge that this kind of endeavor takes time and a lot of resources.  Why?  Because the heavier lifting needs to be done “below water” to ensure that there is complete understanding of impacts/challenges that the new normal poses to shared assumptions, perceptions, values, beliefs, traditions and feelings. Then plans must be created and implemented to support the learning and adjustment required for the new norms, traditions and procedures that come with transformation. This is not a quick program because under water is where we deal with the emotional and sometimes “messy” side of an organization. A good change program anticipates and prepares for the journey of transformation using the whole iceberg.  Leveraging a good change partner is a common strategy that allows the organization to focus on the “above water” activities while the partner helps with the “under water” challenges.

 

If you’re thinking about culture change, know what you’re getting into and that there are no short cuts. However, if you’re dealing with disruption in your industry, and a strategy of improvements is no longer good enough, you may well want to ask yourself, “Can I afford not to undertake culture change to meet my business goals?”
