Vernetztes Denken ist (noch?) eine Illusion

Vernetztes Denken ist (noch?) eine Illusion | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Wir wissen oder glauben zu wissen, dass wir vernetzt denken müssen, um die Komplexität der heutigen vernetzten Welt zu handhaben. Aber können wir überhaupt vernetzt denken?

Du besoin de savoir penser

Du besoin de savoir penser | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Dans son dernier ouvrage « La faillite de la pensée managériale » (1), François Dupuy s’attache à démonter le mécanisme par lequel la pensée managériale conduit les dirigeants, par le biais de décisions paresseuses (2), dans des impasses aux conséquences très concrètes. Examinons ensemble ce qui conduit à une pensée ordinaire et explorons les attitudes qui permettraient d’aller vers une connaissance élaborée.

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

How can governments deal with complexity?  The kryptonite of strategic thinking | Complex systems and projects | 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."

Philippe Vallat's insight:

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.
