The Seneca Effect: why decline is faster than growth

The Seneca Effect: why decline is faster than growth | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

For a long time, I had in mind the idea that when things start going bad, they tend to go bad fast. We might call this tendency the "Seneca effect" or the "Seneca cliff," from Lucius Annaeus Seneca who wrote that "increases are of sluggish growth, but the way to ruin is rapid."

Complexity – What’s new? | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

The existence of complexity in human systems is not new; we have simply become more conscious of it. We now know that we can distinguish complex systems from ordered systems and engage purposefully and productively with complexity.

Pour en finir avec l’ «innovation disruptive»

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."

COMPLEXITY, PROBLEM SOLVING, AND SUSTAINABLE SOCIETIES, by Joseph A. Tainter, 1996

Historical knowledge is essential to practical applications of ecological economics. Systems of problem solving develop greater complexity and higher costs over long periods. In time such systems either require increasing energy subsidies or they collapse. Diminishing returns to complexity in problem solving limited the abilities of earlier societies to respond sustainably to challenges, and will shape contemporary responses to global change. To confront this dilemma we must understand both the role of energy in sustaining problem solving, and our historical position in systems of increasing complexity.
