The Adaptive Cycle Diagram

All complex organizations have a life cycle. They are born, they grow, they age, and they die. Often, a new version of the old system is reborn and goes through the life cycle again.

 

The model that has proven most useful to me in considering how to change these complex systems is the Adaptive Cycle (pictured above; for more versions of the model see Variations on Adaptive Cycle Model), also called the Panarchy Model. The adaptive cycle, slightly modified, is a useful  template for understanding how the purpose of an organization and its use of resources change throughout its life cycle.

The Stacey matrix

A useful map for navigating your way into the concepts and field of complexity is "The Stacey Matrix". It can help to guide you by offering a method to select the appropriate management actions in a complex adaptive system based on the degree of certainty and level of agreement on the issue in question.

Responding to Complexity and Uncertainty: The Agile Organisation

Responding to Complexity and Uncertainty: The Agile Organisation | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

Over the past two decades, management consultants and academics at business schools have increasingly stressed what they view as the rapidly increasing levels of complexity and uncertainty in the environment that all organisations have to respond to and many have labelled these conditions ‘ hyper-competition’ or ‘high velocity competition’. To deal with these conditions, consultants and academics have called for organisations to become ‘agile organisations’.
