The Embarrassment of Complexity

The Embarrassment of Complexity | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Integrative thinking can help us focus on the smaller picture, and still comprehend the larger one.
Philippe Vallat's insight:

Citation: "Let us be clear: No human group can survive, let alone effectively cooperate, without being able to develop a shared outlook on the world which is the precondition for acting together. But it is also the case that social groups thrive by making room for plurality, dissenting voices, and different perspectives."

Control and Growth – Tipping the Balance in a ‘VUCA’ World

Natural disasters, technological disruptions, transitory advantages, fractured markets, multifarious competitors, increasingly demanding customers and fickle consumers. Thanks to the military, we have a useful descriptor for the conditions and environment these drivers create; ‘VUCA’ – volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity… a combination of the magnitude and speed of change, the lack of predictability and prospect of surprise, the multitude of forces and confounding issues, and the lack of ‘one right answer’ or single course of action.

Fred Payne on Complex Project Management

Fred Payne on Complex Project Management | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Then I learned about +Fred Payne, and at the same time about the International Centre for Complex Project Management (ICCPM). The ICCPM has a strong foot in Australia and the Commonwealth, and another foot in the US. Its business seem to be international, and what attracted me was its work with Airspace and Defense. I love planes and action movies. I saw the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon, and A&D a great bait for me.

La décision dans un monde VICA (1/2) | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Automne 1941. L’amiral américain Husband E. Kimmel,  commandant en chef de la flotte du Pacifique, a réuni son état-major. Les nouvelles sont mauvaises : la flotte japonaise a disparu et nul ne connaît ses intentions. Sont-elles belliqueuses ? Faut-il mobiliser l’armée des Etats-Unis qui ne sont pas encore en guerre ? Confusion, incertitudes, enjeux majeurs - la base de décision de l’Amiral n’est pas très confortable, aussi exhorte-t-il son état-major à « craquer le code radio des japonais » pour enfin savoir, afin qu’il puisse prendre « la meilleure des décisions ».

What VUCA Really Means for You, Getting Prepared and Agile with It

What VUCA Really Means for You, Getting Prepared and Agile with It | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

VUCA, short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, and a catchall for “Hey, it’s crazy out there!”    It’s also misleading: VUCA conflates four distinct types of challenges that demand four distinct types of responses. That makes it difficult to know how to approach a challenging situation and easy to use VUCA as a crutch, a way to throw off the hard work of strategy and planning—after all, you can’t prepare for a VUCA world, right?
 

Actually, you can. Here is a guide to identifying, getting ready for, and responding to events in each of the four VUCA categories.

VUCA is a term from the military, put into popular use by futurist Bob Johansen in 2010, as mentioned in his book, now in a its second edition,  Leaders Make the Future: Ten New Leadership Skills for an Uncertain World.  The quadrant model depicted, by authors  is handy for thinking through what you can learn and do to be fully prepared and agile enough for this VUCA world.  ~  Deb

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 7, 8:31 AM

The world of work is increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. As a result it is time to view surprises as the new normal and steady state as the exception. The difference over the past decade is the increasing speed at which leaders need to address multiple challenges, often at the same time.
