La complexité, le défi de la pensée systémique

La complexité, le défi de la pensée systémique | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

La complexité est la résultante directe de plusieurs siècles de constructions du monde, elle a été créée inconsciemment par l’homme, mais elle lui a échappé par sa puissance et la force de ses effets. Elle a su séduire et se rendre attractive

Philippe Olivier Clement's curator insight, May 13, 2013 9:07 AM

La complexité est d’ailleurs une notion ambivalente, elle est tout autant fascinante que déroutante, fantastique que terrible dans ses effets. Elle est incroyablement humaine et c’est cela qui la rend particulièrement difficile à maîtriser.

 

La complexité se pose aujourd’hui comme un défi pour l’homme, un défi de société qui appelle avant tout de penser le monde comme jamais il n’avait été pensé jusqu’alors.

The Cynefin Framework and emotional intelligence

The Cynefin Framework and emotional intelligence | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

By attending a very inspiring workshop with Robert Dilts about « Leadership in times of uncertainty » in Bruxelles this week-end, some analogies with the Cynefin Framework of Dave Snowden (that I presented previously) emerged in my mind.
Taking as base the « Revised Leadership Table » by D. Snowden, I put on the paper some reflexions about further leadership dimensions.

Pouvons-nous comprendre “la sagesse des foules” si nous ne savons pas comment fonctionnent les comportements collectifs ?

Paradoxalement, alors que la sagesse des foules devient un lieu commun des milieux high-tech, les travaux théoriques sur la question semblent rencontrer quelques difficultés. Apparemment, nous ne comprenons pas encore bien la nature de ces essaims, malgré la puissance de nos simulations.

Le management de l’incertain ou la mort

Le management de l’incertain ou la mort | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

La mondialisation ne s’arrêtera pas et évolue sans cesse sous différentes formes. Ces dernières augmentent l’incertitude à une vitesse toujours plus grande à tel point que personne n’échappe(ra) à faire face à l’incertain. Nous devons donc nous préparer et préparer nos entreprises, au management de l’incertain, les budgets annuels et le management par les chiffres les conduiront à la faillite.

Faire confiance et lâcher prise, la clef de la réussite des entreprises qui sont encore dans un management du certain.
Loïc CARO's comment, March 22, 2013 5:22 AM
Oui vous avez raison, le manque de confiance semble récurrent! Pour moi le manque de confiance s'apparente au manque de foi: Question: quelle type de foi? en quoi? en qui? Réflexion: si "La foi est une ferme assurance des choses qu'on espère, une démonstration de celles qu'on ne voit pas" alors ce pourrait être une définition qui en dit long et qui permettrai de changer les pratiques. Un excellent antidote à la peur, une excellente pensée qui amène le changement, le changement de posture face à "l'incertain"!

Agents of influence

Models of complex systems have become a staple of business strategy, and now they are showing early promise for improving economic forecasts.

Self-Aware Agents

 

Busemeyer is helping to develop the theories needed to create “quantum agents” in future models. These would need to contain additional feedback loops, in which some agents’ actions are informed by the existence and output of other agent-based models.

 

This approach may be particularly suited to the world of high finance. As investors learn more about complexity theory, they become aware of their status as agents in predictive models, and they also run agent-based models to inform their own decision making—just like Busemeyer’s quantum agents.

Ultimately, though, none of these models will offer iron-clad predictions, because they have to make simplifying assumptions about human behavior. The true test will be whether those assumptions, and the resulting outputs of the models, convince policymakers to act on their advice.

 

“The way that our computational approach will eventually outrun conventional analytical and numerical methods in economics and finance is by having much more supple and succinct representations of human behavior,” says Axtell. But even then, “we don’t want policymakers to simply take the results of the model completely at face value without any use of their own judgment.”

Komplexität, Unsicherheit und Intuition

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Komplexität ist sicherlich einer der meist gebrauchten Begriffe unserer Zeit, aber auch einer der am wenigsten fassbaren Begriffe unserer Zeit. Er wird immer dann heran gezogen, wenn es darum geht, zu erläutern, dass Veränderung ansteht oder notwendig ist, denn die Welt sei komplexer geworden und unsere bisherigen mentalen oder sonstigen Werkzeuge reichten nicht mehr aus, um mit dieser Komplexität Schritt zu halten.

The Illusion of Control: Are There Benefits to Being Self-Deluded? | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Do people always overestimate how much they control their lives?
Philippe Vallat's insight:

This effect will have to be renamed the illusion of futility. In other words: when you have high control, you underestimate how much what you do really matters.

Our tools for identifying cause-and-effect in the world are matched by a particular view of how causality works. Ideas from complexity theory are forcing us to update our views on causality, so our tools must be updated as well.

It is indeed needed to know and acknowledge the difference , because many mistakes are made to use tools like Lean 6sigma,balancedscorecard, for complex problems , while they should use for complicated.

The big difference is order and unorder, predictibility and risk.

James B. Glattfelder: Who controls the world?

James Glattfelder studies complexity: how an interconnected system -- say, a swarm of birds -- is more than the sum of its parts. And complexity theory, it turns out, can reveal a lot about how the economy works. Glattfelder shares a groundbreaking study of how control flows through the global economy, and how concentration of power in the hands of a shockingly small number leaves us all vulnerable.
