Good content coming in a juicy package. Further reference is made to his and Robin Skinner's books 'Families and how to survive them' and in this context especially: 'Life and how to survice it', a systemic approach to the dynamics of groups, including organisations. But in dialogue form. I strongly recommend it for your bed table. A good night's sleep assured!

Defining and Modeling Complex Adaptive Systems

Defining and Modeling Complex Adaptive Systems | Dynamic steering at work | Scoop.it
Almost all the critical problems of our time are problems of control and almost all of them concern complex adaptive systems. If we want to know more about our bodies, it is not just to increase knowledge but so that we can control our health.

 

CAS are  “systems that don’t yield compact forms of representation”1. In other words a complex system cannot be described by a simple set of equations. Why would this be the case? It is the “adaptive” nature of these systems that leads to this intractability. Agents within the system respond to each set of environmental conditions within a complex adaptive system with a different set of responses and the number of such environments and their corresponding agent responses that need to be accounted for to construct an accurate model of the system is simply too large. But is this simply a problem of impracticality? Could we, at least in theory, construct a model that takes into account all possible environmental conditions and all possible agent behaviours? Although some scientists may argue that such an approach is theoretically possible, there is ample evidence that the critical “adaptive” component of some complex adaptive systems may in fact be unmodelable


Via Anne Caspari
Léonne Willems's insight:

Another way to think about environmental influences at the source of tensions at work (as opposed to individual lack of employee performance or motivational problems). Are these 'tensions' actually symptoms of a system out of balance? Are these tensions the real gems for organisational steering? Check out how Holacracy capitalises just on that! 

more...
Anne Caspari's comment, March 14, 2013 2:56 PM
complex adaptive systems can often be identified by observing the critical role that disorderly processes play in maintaining system resilience. For example, the disorderly and often unpredictable nature of flooding is a vital factor in maintaining the productivity and resilience of many complex river-floodplain systems. But the same rarely holds for simpler systems such as small temperate streams... Interesting the examples on trying to manage CAS with the opposite effect of reducing resilience and robbing them of antifragility. Forests, rivers, ecnomic systems..

What Is A Complex Adaptive System?

The first question that then needs to be answered is: What is a complex adaptive system? David Krakauer defines complex systems as “systems that don’t yield compact forms of representation”1. In other words a complex system cannot be described by a simple set of equations. Why would this be the case? As Krakauer notes, it is the “adaptive” nature of these systems that leads to this intractability. Agents within the system respond to each set of environmental conditions within a complex adaptive system with a different set of responses and the number of such environments and their corresponding agent responses that need to be accounted for to construct an accurate model of the system is simply too large. But is this simply a problem of impracticality? Could we, at least in theory, construct a model that takes into account all possible environmental conditions and all possible agent behaviours? Although some scientists may argue that such an approach is theoretically possible, there is ample evidence that the critical “adaptive” component of some complex adaptive systems may in fact be unmodelable. There is no better example of this than the problems faced by the economist Hyman Minsky in formalising many of his most important ideas.

Un site très original qui ne demande qu'à émerger.  Simple et ludique pour démystifier ce qu'est la mobilisation de l'intelligence collective. Un outil à utiliser.

 

La coopération et la collaboration ne sont qu'une étape dans l'intelligence collective. Elle fait appel à cohésion opérative... Un outil indispensable mais pas suffisant pour provoquer un véritable changement organisationnel.

Via Russ Bergeman
Léonne Willems's insight:

Yes, people are the ones that need to change in transformative organisation change, but people as in 'sensors of tension'. And yes,  decentralised, depoliticised decision-making promotes that. So processes need to take the ego out of the individual to assure alignment with the organisation's mission. Ever heard of the social technology 'Holacracy'? Check it out! I am a believer!

Russ Bergeman's curator insight, March 28, 2013 10:48 AM

This is an interesting piece describing a grand perspective on organizational change. Mr. Holmgren offers eight bulleted highlights from a recent conversation he had with a client seeking his consultative services. The point that stood out for me is the emphasis that an organization is about the people and in order to create change, people must be moved to change. Structure, systems, functions, and technology are important elements of any successful organization, but people are at the center of it all. Most of the resistance that people within an organization have to change is related to the discomfort that accompanies the unknown. When the people within an organization are included in the decision-making process, the molding of the organization of which they are a part, they are more open to change.

 

All of this starts with having the right people in the right jobs in order to develop high performing and trust filled teams. Without the core of trust, change is much more difficult. Not impossible, just more complicated. The good news is that people are relatively pliable, which makes organizations more flexible than we often believe. It is really a matter of how the development of people is approached.

 

How do you select the right people for your organization?

What is the best approach for developing the people in an organization?

What is the best way to include teammates in the organizational change process?

Why Yammer believes the traditional engineering organizational structure is dead

Léonne Willems's insight:

How Yammer organises its company structure: damn interesting.

 

e.g. 'Organise bugs treatment just as another projetct and rotate (senior engineers take turns in debugging too, not only junior engineers).'

 

Thumb rule at Yammer: 2 to 10 people, 2 to 10 days (to keep engineers alert til the end and have them focus on 1 projet at a time).

Useful comparison. What I until now experience as a paradox is the increased specialization on the one hand and the need for leadership and vision.

Léonne Willems's comment, March 27, 2013 11:29 AM
My take on what could be experienced as a paradox between 'hyper'specialization and leadership/vision is the comparison with the camera lens: I see specialisation as the zooming in and the leadership as taking what can be learned and put to use from zooming in, and assure the alignment with the zoomed out organisation view, including the larger environment (competition, markets, economy, taxes. I actually don't see a paradox, rather a synergy. Enlighten me :-)

Thanks to Dustin Woods for turning me onto the concepts of Holacracy. 


I've posted here one of their founding blog posts, about 3 years ago, which is pretty easy to get your head around..an organisation as a living being in an evolutionary chain. It's driven by its own unique purpose in life, where every action and decision serves to create a healthier future (to procreate, so to speak.). 


Very, very different paradigm from our shareholder-driven or customer-driven view of the organisation.
