  • 12. OK, let’s discuss making the change.
  • 13. Leadership and governance are both part of management.
  • 14.
  • 15. Maybe we’ll be happier if we perform better?
  • 16. We can help with that!
  • 17. scientific management project management structured programming
  • 18. You all play a part in the whole construction. Your goal is to increase performance!
  • 19.
  • 20. 70 percent of all strategies and projects fail.
  • 21. We’re still not happy. Maybe we should work toward a greater purpose?
  • 22. We can help with that!
  • 23. six sigma TQM BPR TOC
  • 24. I have a great idea! Now you must all change for the greater good.
  • 25.
  • 26. Fads often fail to deliver on their promises, a factor that contributes to their short life cycles and rapid decline.
  • 27. At the same time the world is getting more complex.
  • 28. ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?? ? ? ??? ? ? ? ?
  • 29. Unless the organization learns to increase its health as a living complex system.
  • 30. Complexity theory is […] about the dynamics of change in a system.
  • 31. […] a new theory of business that places people and relationships into dramatic relief.
  • 32. I think the next century will be the century of complexity. 
  • 33. Interesting! But how do we increase our health and become happier?
  • 34. We can help with that!
  • 35. Scrum Lean Agile Kanban
  • 36. OK, do whatever you want. As long as you allow the community to benefit from it.
  • 37.
  • 38. But, different community leaders suggest fixing things in different ways...

  • 45. It seems we’re making progress, but...
  • 46. Maybe we can do even better when we really understand complexity thinking.
  • 47. Only variety can absorb variety.
  • 48. Ashby's law of requisite variety is as important to managers as Einstein's law of relativity to physicists.
  • 49. When applied to organizations, it has been called requisite complexity.
  • 50. 1) Address complexity with complexity The complexity of a system must be adequate to the complexity of the environment that it finds itself in.
  • 51.
  • 52. 2) Use a diversity of perspectives Complexity itself is antimethodology. It is against "one size fits all."
  • 53.
  • 54. 3) Assume dependence on context Best practice is always past practice.
  • 55.
  • 56. 4) Assume subjectivity and coevolution What you measure is what you get.
  • 57.
  • 58. 5) Anticipate, adapt, explore Evolutionary systems by their nature involve experimentation.
  • 59.
  • 60. 6) Develop models in collaboration Those formulating the abstraction are making a gesture whose meaning can only emerge in many, many local interactions.

  • 65. Complexity Tips
  • 66. There’s nothing as practical as good theory.
  • 67. Now use the complexity your organization already has.

  • 82.
  • 83.
  • 84. It’s not about reaching a certain level. It’s about increasing health, so you can keep climbing.
  • 85. Aha! Steal healthy practices, Use in safe experiments, Learn as fast as possible, Adapt to your needs, repeat...
