Building Innovation Capital
Innovation covers much, we need to open our thinking to explore all its possibilities in approach, geography, activity or challenge. I will keep 'grabbing' those that seem interesting to explore and reflect upon- seeking the value

This blog is great. Lots of good stuff on self-organizing!

Leadership Learning Community's curator insight, January 18, 2014 1:09 PM

How could leadership programs encourage more self-organizing so leaders would learn this very important process that could be applied in their work?

"... innovation journey, the author suggests an equation, which is: 'Identify' X 'Insight' X 'Idea' X 'Impact' = Innovation

Identify = the strategic purpose

Insight = an opportunity for differentiation

Idea = the core concept

The Heart as a Complex Adaptive System

The Heart as a Complex Adaptive System | Building Innovation Capital | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that the heart is a system onto itself and that it is intimately intertwined with the nervous and endocrine system residing within its borders. The capacity of self-organized systems to adapt is embodied in the functional organization of the intrinsic control mechanisms. How these regulatory subsystems communicate and how uncoupling of the hierarchical organization results in loss of adaptive "fitness"remains a challenge in human biology. The principles by which "emergent properties" and functional order of a self-organizingsystem, such as the heart, achieve (homeo)dynamic stability provide a non-reductionist framework for understanding how biological system adapts to imposed internal and external stresses, e.g., ischemia, organ/tissue transplantation. In particular, the newly emergent dynamics of cardiac rhythm observed after the heart is transplanted may reflect a more stable,versatile and adaptive (as per "law of requisite variety") bipartite whole. The integrative action of the living organism can not be gotten from their concatenated fractions but is evolved "relationally", i.e., it emanates from emergent internal requirements of the constitutive parts.
