Be suspicious of stories

Be suspicious of stories | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

 Like all of us, economist Tyler Cowen loves a good story. But in this intriguing talk, he asks us to step away from thinking of our lives -- and our messy, complicated irrational world -- in terms of a simple narrative.
(Filmed at TEDxMidAtlantic.)

Philippe Vallat's insight:

About stories, mental laziness, cognitive biases, manipulation

Pierre Gauthier's curator insight, July 15, 2014 9:46 AM

Anyone who practices mindfulness is very intimately familiar with "the storyteller". What Tyler Cowan talks about in the excellent TEDx talk could be quite upsetting to some people who haven't been deep in their practice. Very good!

Managing complexity: a practical example

In Switzerland, there are more than 4'000 contaminated sites needing remediation in the next decades. Some of the remediation projects are especially large – over 100 Millions € - and highly complex. On behalf of the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN), the authors developed a guideline (in press) to support the authorities which are challenged by such complex projects.
After having identified the success factors and key challenges of three sites being currently remediated, a project typology, based on four dimensions (technical, legal, socio-relational and management), has been developed. Further, a complexity grid, inspired by the project complexity model of Kathleen Hass, has been developed, allowing a qualitative identification of the main sources of complexity. Finally, success factors, recommendations and tools for key elements like goal-setting, decision-making and steering, stakeholder-management, project-organisation, participation and communication, planning, uncertainty and risk-management, culture and leadership, are suggested.

Les mauvaises nouvelles, personne n'aime ça. Encore moins ceux qui sont chargés de les annoncer, comme cela arrive de temps à autres aux leaders. Pourquoi ça?
