Taming Complexity

Taming Complexity

Make sure the benefits of any addition to an organization’s systems outweigh its costs. by 

From the Magazine (January–February 2020)Tatiana Plakhova Summary.   

It can be cognitively demanding to understand how a system or organization made up of many very different interconnected elements actually works. But the fact that such systems or organizations are difficult to understand doesn’t make them inherently bad. In addition to its more obvious costs, complexity confers critical benefits, especially in dynamic and uncertain environments. The authors draw on their experience and perspectives in business, biology, and physics to offer some reflections on the nature, benefits, and costs of complexity and provide some guidance on managing it. Their recommendations: In growing your organization, make sure that it remains modular in structure and that all components and connections conform to a small number of simple operating principles. Embed a bias for change, avoid imposing too many controls on your people, and let the market judge which changes work. Finally, always optimize your organization globally and keep fixing, repairing, and pruning.

Human Cognitive Pacemakers: Beyond Functionlistic, Formalistic Analysis of Life Sarah Bro Trasmundi Oslo University; Centre for Human Interactivity, Unversity of Southern Denmark Feb. 10, 2022, noon UTC // Feb. 10, 2022, noon in UTC Human life is a process that is punctuated by events (Stewart, 2019). In this lecture I focus on (i) the temporal dynamics that compose an event and (ii) how such events are grounded in imaginative, creative processes from an affective-embodied cognitive perspective. That is, how do people come up with new solutions, and why do such solutions sometimes deviate from what is expected? Often deviations emerge for no obvious reason and reveal themselves in punctuations such as breaks and ruptures.

Sticky Studio

Make sense of messy topics together Sticky Studio is a collaborative space for complex discussions

Sticky Studio

In the Ecology of Systems Thinking group on Facebook, Gene Bellinger says:

Take a look at Sticky Studio from the Kumu people. A real-time web-based environment for creating relationship maps. Partway down on the entry page is a Brief Guide done in Sticky Studio. There is also a link to a temporary board where you can try out the environment. And they’ve updated the pricing scheme so you can create as many public boards as you care to with as many collaborators as you might need. This is awesome stuff!!!

Adaptive Computing – Carlos Gershenon – free course

Adaptive Computing

ADAPTIVE COMPUTING

Class overview

Complex systems are characterized by interactions that may generate novel information. This information can change problems, so previous solutions become obsolete. To face complexity, we need adaptation. In this course, we will cover different methods for building systems that can adapt to unforeseen changes.

Go to Classroom.

The class is open and free for all students worldwide.

Those who deliver successfully coursework and final project will receive a certificate.

What do you want to read from me?

chosen path

The below is posted on LinkedIn, which has been the driver for my blogging – I put all my pieces, usually twice-weekly, on www.chosen-path.org for the open web and https://antlerboy.medium.com/ (and then weekly I do a newsletter summary of the pieces and a few others links I’ve shared on Twitter and through https://stream.syscoi.com/, and share that newsletter on LinkedIn, getRevue, substack, and Medium and the Chosen Path blog)…

I’d value comments there – and also comments here on ‘what I’m posting’ in general…

The Reality War

Gnostics. It’s just Gnostics all the way down.

N.S. Lyons Oct 29, 2021

What if I told you our world isn’t as it seems? That much of what we call politics and the “culture war” is really an ancient theological war over the metaphysics of reality, colliding with the digital revolution? Well, if you’re willing to follow the white rabbit, then take whatever color of pill you’re partial to, strap on your VR headset, and buckle up, because this is gonna get weird.

What makes EDI so hard?

EDI – Electronic Data Interchange – is an umbrella term for many different “standardized” frameworks for exchanging business-to-business transactions. It dates back to the 1960s and remains a pain point in every commercial industry from supply chain and logistics to healthcare and finance. What makes it so hard? Why is it still an unsolved problem despite many decades of immense usage?

Learning from Experience: Toward Consciousness

  • January 1972

Abstract

This book addresses the question of how people learn from experience. The topic is unusually slippery and easily eludes one’s grasp just when one feels one has it defined and placed. For example, scientific investigation seeks objective knowledge, yet experience is unmistakably subjective; therefore, must not the esse
