Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

"Think total, act piecemeal..." Like in the PDCA process cycles... what problems are wicked? Page through this presentation...:-))) which are so complex and multifaceted you cannot see it through in one shot... (OK, it's a bit even more complicated...)... what I like also that you should be careful not to use generalised solution managerial methods to everything... the people are different, the situations are different... so, think before act and think in different approaches, in different models...

Simply and well done: a good, understable overview of dealing with wicked problems / complexity / uncertainty

Managing Complexity: The Battle Between Emergence And Entropy

Managing Complexity: The Battle Between Emergence And Entropy | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
By Julian Birkinshaw, London Business School Term Chair Professor of Strategy and Entrepreneurship. The business news continues to be full of stories of large companies getting into trouble in part because of their complexity.

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, things are happening... for one: you are planning things to happen, for two: things are happening (emergently) below the line in the hierarchy (not only bad things, also good things), and for three: every system is slowly degrading if you are not spend energy to counteract this degradation... and the three things are happening simultaneously....

 

Is it so accidental that in a certain time you are not able to spot where you are (how far from that point you wanted to be - in the first place in planning phase....)? No, it's normal... what to do? According to the post, you should from time to time make order (like in the room of the teenagers....), that's the energy spent against the entrophy  (the force behind the "normal" and - without energy input - inevitable degradation)... and then you should support the emergent, inner, lower grade positive forces to help that "flow" becsause it' s them  through whom the external conditions might infuence the processes helping to resist the negative effect of the changing in the environment...

complexity = risk
