Wicked Problems

Wicked Problems | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
A wicked problem is one for which each attempt to create a solution changes the understanding of the problem. Wicked problems cannot be solved in a traditional linear fashion, because the problem definition evolves as new possible solutions are considered and/or implemented. The term was originally coined by Horst Rittel.Wicked problems always occur in a social context -- the wickedness of the problem reflects the diversity among the stakeholders in the problem.

ICTAM: Bringing mental models to numerical models | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

How can we capture the highly qualitative, subjective and rich nature of people's thinking – their mental models - and translate it into formal quantitative data to be used in numerical models?

Estimating Complexity

Over the last few years, teaching people the Cynefin framework early on in engagements has really helped me have useful conversations with my clients about when different processes are appropriate.

Pour en finir avec l’ «innovation disruptive» | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Pas un jour sans tomber sur un article, un blog, un communiqué de presse qui, d’une manière ou d’une autre, se gargarise de la notion « d’innovation disruptive ». Non pas que l’innovation de rupture soit mauvaise en soi, mais plutôt sa quête effrénée, son adulation telle un nouveau Saint Graal. Et non, ma voix ne se joindra pas à ce chœur bêlant. Et voilà pourquoi.

The Reality of Complexity

The business world is in the throes of revolutionary change, a time when business leaders are preoccupied with change itself. Modern management theory borders on being obsessed with change of one sort or other: how to generate it, how to respond to it, how to avoid being overcome by it. The reason is not hard to find.

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Very exciting statement: "this new science leads to a new theory of business that places people and relationships - how people interact with each other, the kinds of relationships they form - into dramatic relief."

Pourquoi parler d’effondrement et de collapse de notre civilisation ? Parce que le faisceau d’informations factuelles est très convergent, parce que cela a à voir avec les systèmes complexes, et parce que la résilience, individuelle et collective, commence par l’acceptation de la réalité telle qu’elle est.
