Lean Management & intelligence collective : concurrence ou complémentarité ?

Lean Management & intelligence collective : concurrence ou complémentarité ? | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Tel le chat sur une branche d’arbre qui ne veut pas descendre, cela fait plusieurs mois que je repousse la publication de ce billet. J’espérais en vain qu’on arrête de me demander ce que l’intelligence collective apportait de plus que le Lean Management.

Stop a stock trade and avoid a catastrophic global financial crash. Seal a microscopic crack and prevent a rocket explosion. Push a button to avert a citywide blackout.

Though such situations are mostly fantasies, a new analysis suggests that certain types of extreme events occurring in complex systems – known as dragon king events – can be predicted and prevented.

Human evolution: Who are we becoming?

Human evolution: Who are we becoming? | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Graves described human development as ‘an unfolding, emergent, oscillating, spiralling process’ marked by progressive movement upwards through increasingly complex stages.
