Emerging Concepts and Forms of Integral Leadership: Embodying a Radically New Development Paradigm

Emerging Concepts and Forms of Integral Leadership: Embodying a Radically New Development Paradigm | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Good argument for new paradigm concepts and a vision of  "awareness-based, love-infused, presence-centered, evolutionary leadership”  (but beyond green meme concepts :-))  drawing on Steiner, Campbell, Kegan, Torbert, Wilber, etc. The article gives a solid overview over qualities, concepts and practices that are emerging and gives a taste on what a new paradigm of leadership and development "in relationship to nature, community and meaning"  could actually look like embodied, and nd most importantly, scaled up.

The Importance of Mistakes in Complex Systems (TED)

Economics writer Tim Harford studies complex systems -- and finds a surprising link among the successful ones: they were built through trial and error. In this sparkling talk from TEDGlobal 2011, he asks us to embrace our randomness and start making better mistakes.

The role of cognitive biases in project failure. The same thing will happen with the European and Italian rehabilitation projects in particular?

The role of cognitive biases in project failure. The same thing will happen with the European and Italian rehabilitation projects in particular? | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

There are two distinct views of project management practice: the rational view which focuses on management tools and techniques such as those espoused by frameworks and methodologies, and the social/behavioural view which looks at the social aspect of projects – i.e. how people behave and interact in the context of a project and the wider organisation. The difference between the two is significant: one looks at how projects should be managed, it prescribes tools, techniques and practices; the other at what actually happens on projects, how people interact and how managers make decisions. The gap between the two can sometimes spell the difference between project success and failure. In many failed projects, the failure can be traced back to poor decisions, and the decisions themselves to cognitive biases: i.e. errors in judgement based on perceptions. A paper entitled, Systematic Biases and Culture in Project Failure, by Barry Shore looks at the role played by selected cognitive biases in the failure of some high profile projects. The paper also draws some general conclusions on the relationship between organisational culture and cognitive bias. This post presents a summary and review of the paper.

The Power of Intention to Spark Evolutionary Change

The Power of Intention to Spark Evolutionary Change | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Over my lifetime, I have learned from experience that holding an intention for change can result in creating the desired change. I have seen it work in bringing people and relationships into my life, creating the work I desired, and helping me develop a path forward to create the change. Essentially, I learned that if I could envision it, I could bring it into reality. It has worked so effectively that I know I have to be careful that what I think I want to create is what I really want or need.

Donnez-moi un chiffre! | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

J'ai participé à divers débats sur LinkedIn autour de la notion de « quantification de la complexité ». Sur ces forums, certains prétendent que la complexité non seulement peut être quantifiée, mais qu’elle doit l’être, que seule une telle démarche est rigoureuse et scientifique et qu’elle est la base indispensable de toute prise de décision sérieuse...

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. This upward movement is an adaptive response to our changing life conditions. So as our lives become more complex (ie more connected), we are prompted to develop higher, more complex thinking and behaviours in order to cope.
