Simply and well done: a good, understable overview of dealing with wicked problems / complexity / uncertainty

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, April 14, 2014 7:43 AM

"Think total, act piecemeal..." Like in the PDCA process cycles... what problems are wicked? Page through this presentation...:-))) which are so complex and multifaceted you cannot see it through in one shot... (OK, it's a bit even more complicated...)... what I like also that you should be careful not to use generalised solution managerial methods to everything... the people are different, the situations are different... so, think before act and think in different approaches, in different models...

Amy Melendez's insight:

from the post - Thought to Ponder
