Transcript

  • 1. SYSTEMS & CHAOS THEORY<br />Brian Futterman & Scott Renick<br />
  • 2. Complexity and Chaos(anything but)<br />“Companies don’t innovate; markets do.” –Dick Foster<br />Complex adaptive systems<br />Ants scale to organizations<br />Evolving rules, dynamic environment, interacting agents<br />Chaos vs. stasis – two possible states of a CAS with shifting patterns and group interactions<br />
  • 3. Beinhocker says:<br />All are open systems comprising a number of agents whose dynamic interactions self-organize to create a larger structure.<br />Eric Beinhocker, Strategy at the edge of Chaos, 1997<br />Writing about cities, forest ecosystems, the immune system, and the Internet.<br />
  • 4. Beinhocker says:<br />EMERGENCE<br />
  • 5. Sources<br />McBride, N. (n.d.). Chaos Theory and Information Systems (pp. 1-13, Tech.).<br />
  • 6. Equilibrium Video<br />Beinhocker,E.D. (1997) &quot;Strategy at the edge of chaos.&quot; The McKinsey Quarterly, 1, p. 27<br />
  • 7. …behaviour in chaotic systems may be perceived as unpredictable. Periods of inactivity may be punctuated by sudden change, apparent patterns of behaviour may disappear and new patterns unexpectedly emerge. Such behaviour emerges in complex systems. This chaotic behaviour does not indicate a lack of order.Rather, the order is difficult or impossible to describe in simple terms and requires complex narrative description.<br />McBride, 2008<br />EMPHASIS ADDED<br />
  • 8. “Wait, what just happened?”<br />Beinhocker,E.D. (1997) &quot;Strategy at the edge of chaos.&quot; The McKinsey Quarterly, 1, p. 32<br />
  • 9. Systems Theory<br />
  • 10. Chaos Theory<br />the qualitative study of unstable, aperiodicbehaviour in deterministic, nonlinear dynamic systems (Kellert, 1993 quoted in Tsoukas, 1998)<br />
  • 11. Chaos Theory<br />Qualitative <br />
  • 12. Chaos Theory<br />Unstable <br />
  • 13. Chaos Theory<br />Aperiodic<br />
  • 14. Chaos Theory<br />Deterministic<br />
  • 15. Further Reading<br />
