In-sighting Emergent Capacities

In-sighting Emergent Capacities | Generative Systems Design | Scoop.it

It is not the designer’s role to steer individuals to any particular insight, or to mine the individual’s own intuition of what is leaning into their own horizon. Sometimes an insight or intuition can seem to be off track, or seem to take the student in the “wrong direction” – but emergent design requires that we drop the notion of “wrong direction” and allow the inherent genius of the co-creative, adaptive process to be generative of the process. To design for co-creative emergent process, means to discover, by trial and error if necessary, the minimum elegant structure for insight-generation.

Anne Caspari's insight:

There is something new happening; potentially beautiful/powerful and definetely insight-ful. :-) www.alderloreinsightcenter.com

If we put subject this work to Generative Process Analytics, what further insight reveals itself?

First we can map the G5 processes onto the diagrams as follows:

Step-Wise = ConstructionTrial and Error = construction with a feedback loop. The system is reversible by an outside agent. However, we can enrichen this pattern dynamic by removing the conditions of reversibility — in which case, because the”trial form” provides feedback, but is irreversible, it’s agency is in forcing the agent to continually work with (adapt to) what is. This then creates the conditions for Autopoeisis.Structure-preserving = DevelopmentDesign from Weakness - EvolutionNew from Existing = Emergence

We are all familiar with it because we have ridden its wave many times in our lives.  Some of us have developed the wisdom to embrace it when it arises; others are still resisting it, stricken by a...

this is a pretty good of synopsis different viewpoints on the same phenomenon of transformation - CAS, panarchy, U process, Hero's journey. I like it.

Embracing Emergence: How Collective Impact Addresses Complexity (SSIR)

Embracing Emergence: How Collective Impact Addresses Complexity (SSIR) | Generative Systems Design | Scoop.it

When the Process Becomes the Solution

We have found in both our research and consulting that those who hope to launch collective impact efforts often expect that the process begins by finding solutions that a collective set of actors can agree upon. In fact, developing a common agenda is not about creating solutions at all, but about achieving a common understanding of the problem, agreeing to joint goals to address the problem, and arriving at common indicators to which the collective set of involved actors will hold themselves accountable in making progress. It is the process that comes after the development of the common agenda in which solutions and resources are uncovered, agreed upon, and collectively taken up. Those solutions and resources are quite often not known in advance. They are typically emergent, arising over time through collective vigilance, learning, and action that result from careful structuring of the effort. If the structure-specific steps we have discussed here are thoughtfully implemented, we believe that there is a high likelihood that effective solutions will emerge, though the exact timing and nature cannot be predicted with any degree of certainty. This, of course, is a very uncomfortable state of being for many stakeholders.

And yet staying with this discomfort brings many rewards. 

A previously unnoticed evidence-based practice, movement, or resource from outside the community is identified and applied locally.Local individuals or organizations begin to work together differently than before and therefore find and adopt new solutions.A successful strategy that is already working locally, but is not systematically or broadly practiced, is identified and spread more widely.

Anne Caspari's insight:

“When you are moving towards an objective, it is very important to pay attention to the road. It is the road that teaches us the best way to get there, and the road enriches us as we walk its length.”

 

Finally an article on CAS that focuses on the right Process Design features. Good.
