The World of VUCA

A short video introducing the acronym VUCA. VUCA is an acronym used to describe situations or environments that engender high levels of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.

A is for Ambiguity

Ambiguity is the quality of being open to more than one interpretation. It results in the haziness of reality; the potential for misreading and mixed meanings to conditions

Elements of Management

In this short paper, we try to outline a basic definition of what we mean by the practice of management. Which we talk about as the activity of organizing or arranging people or things so as to achieve some desired functional outcome

Complex Systems Key Features

In this short paper, we will be trying to give a clear outline to some of the basic concepts within complexity theory and the difference between simple linear systems and complex systems.

Complexity Management Overview

In this paper, we give a high-level overview of the domain of complexity management. We can understand complexity management as the application of complexity theory to the practice of management

Emergent Organizations

This paper looks at the idea of emergence, a central topic within systems theory; how through the synergistic interaction of the individuals within the organization we get the emergence of global behavior and structure that is qua

System Dynamics An Overview

System dynamics is one modeling language from systems theory that is used in the management of large complex systems in order to try and capture these local causal links and how their interactions over time give rise to long-term patterns of behavior.

System Thinking Management

In this paper, we look at the foundations of complexity management by talking about the two different paradigms, synthesis and analysis, where analysis involves modeling something in terms of its constituent parts and their linear interactions

Collaborative Organizations

Interdependence is a key characteristic of complex organizations of all kind and in this paper we discuss how independence and interdependence create very different dynamics, what are called in game theory, zero and nonzero-sum games.

Self-Organizationing Teams

In this paper, we look at the process of self-organization where organization emerges out of local interactions. We firstly give some context to this research by talking about the rise of information technology as an enabler of peer-to-peer interactions
