Leadership In The Age Of Complexity: From Hero To Host

Leadership In The Age Of Complexity: From Hero To Host | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it
For too long, too many of us have been entranced by heroes. Perhaps it's our desire to not have to do the hard work, to rely on someone else to figure things out.

The Downsides of Avoiding Complexity

The Downsides of Avoiding Complexity | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it
By embracing the complexity of today’s intricate systems that knit together the programmatic audience buying landscape, we arm ourselves with more tools.

I like that one: "The course of history has shown that irrationality is one of our specialties, which means there’s no one better than a human to think like a human."

You gotta take the whole that is present, and make intutive sense of it in order to make anything valuable out of "big data".

 

The human brain can only process so much information.  Most likely we will have to use computers to translate the big data into the relevant chunks that we need in order to understand a given situation and to then make choices based on those decisions relative to all sorts of policy and programatic situations, in business and in society.

 

You can't simplify things and just take things at face value anymore.  It didn't really work then, and it certainly should not be used now that we ought to know better.

 

It's amazing to me how human beings fail to register these things!

 

Think about it.

How can governments deal with complexity? The kryptonite of strategic thinking

How can governments deal with complexity?  The kryptonite of strategic thinking | leadership 3.0 | Scoop.it

The more complex a problem, the more difficult it is to come up with a long-term plan, Insead professor Yves Doz says. 

"We are looking at the way in which national governments can become more integrated, can become more strategic, can take a longer-term perspective, [rather] than just be hostage to the political agendas and the political time frames, and that is obviously quite challenging.

We have been finding two or three interesting things."

Worth reading. I like especially:

"We should be aware that beyond a certain point, the complexity is going to defeat attempts at being rational."

Four words: brain implants and computers.

 

We need to learn about the social, economic and environmental physics and how our individual, organizational and collective actions impact everyone and everthing else on this planet.  Then we can develop increasingly accurate models for mapping out what is the optimal state or what is the optimal path to get to that optimal state and then let the programs run their course.

 

Most likely we won't get to that point, owing to one potential calamity or another that could ruin the research.  However, the technology is advancing and the perspective of the universe is being reached.  No more can we afford to live in a world of our own brain's creation.  It's time to embrace the reality that is us and around us for what it is and accept it/work with it as such.  For our own sakes, as much as for everyone elses' sake.

 

Think about it.

Are You Ready to Lose Control?

Control: It’s the essence of management. We’re trained to measure inputs, throughputs, and outputs in hopes of increasing efficiency and producing desired results. In a world of linear processes, such as in the factories of the Industrial Age, that made sense. But in today’s knowledge economy, where enterprises are complex, adaptive systems, it’s counterproductive.
