Use Chaos Theory and Complex system principles as a baseline for management

Both Chaos Theory (CT) and Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS) used by science to explain how complex systems operate as well as successfully surviving and thriving in a complex environment. In the last three months, I posted how to use those principles as a foundation to a management system that can deal better with complexity. This …

Non-Deterministic #Management (NDM) – Random Interactions

One of the concepts of chaos mathematics and complex system is phase transition or tipping point (AKA bifurcation). This concept argues and proves that when a certain ratio (0.5) between elements in a system and their interaction reached, the system will experience a significant change. A known simulation of this concept is the button and …

Non-Deterministic #Management (NDM) – Start with small steps.

When introducing a change to any complex system (including organizations) keep in mind that it is impossible to predict how the change will impact, due to the unexpected behavior of the system and the continuous events that will change system behavior. Chaos theory also explained how complex systems created from simple structures and rules that …

Agile Management – Struggle twice for improvements.

Agile management is taking advantage of many contemporary sciences, one of them is chaos theory. One principle of chaos theory is universality. Universality means that it doesn’t matter which type of chaos system one is observing; it will follow the same principles and have the same characteristics as any other chaos system. Introducing changes to …

Non-Deterministic #Management (NDM) – Co-evolution

The concept of Co-evolution is simple to understand yet profound to any organization. With co-evolution, elements in a system can change based on their interactions with one another and with the environment. Additionally, patterns of behavior can change over time (MIT – http://web.mit.edu/esd.83/www/notebook/Complex%20Adaptive%20Systems.pdf). In organization element of the system are people and groups they are …
