The language and process of CAS

  1. 1. Design Outcome Dynamic Design Platform Emergent Fused-Use Process Framework Complex Adaptive Organization Systems Information Technology The Whole Smart-Web Brain Team Collaborationback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  2. 2. c From: “A Complex Adaptive System”…… To: “Emergent Process” Because CAS exhibit Synergy and Self-Organization, and the outcome is continually Emergentback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  3. 3. emergence emergent intent Emergence refers to what arises out of the depth of complex interactions – more specifically the Agents, Strategies and Artifacts interacting in the depths of the system with the Externalities and Latent-Potential to create a new Higher Order System. When adjustments are made after each emergent possibility arises, what we see after the second or third emergence is a development that would have been absolutely inconceivable from the perspective of our initial understanding.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  4. 4. emergence form emergent The complex adaptive system as a “field of intent” becomes richer, fuller, denser, and more integrated It will ultimately achieve dynamic/punctuated equilibria When the system is “vesselled” in a specific context… Form will begin to emerge spontaneously and naturally This form will be highly integrated, differentiated,back intelligent, and adaptable introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  5. 5. LANDSCAPE OF AN EMERGENT PROCESSto Initial Conditions Sensitivity Seed/Germs Butterfly Effect Edge of Chaos Fractal Form Strange Attractor Bifurcation Points Punctuated Dynamic Equilibriums Collapse/ Step Down Stability Perking Information Complex,Non-Linear,Dynamic Adaptive Systems Amplification Self-organizing Vorticesback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  6. 6. EMERGENT TOOL CHEST ANALYTIC RELATIONAL INFLUENTIAL EMERGENT IMPERATIVE INVENTIVEback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  7. 7. EMERGENT TOOL CHESTback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  8. 8. EMERGENT TOOL CHESTback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  9. 9. FUNDAMENTALS OF COMPLEX- ADAPTIVE SYSTEMS to death. Equilibrium is a precursor The creative “sweet spot” for a system is at the edge of chaos. At the edge of chaos systems self-organize and new forms emerge. Complex systems cannot be forced along a linear path.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  10. 10. EXPERIENCING COMPEX-ADAPTIVE SYSTEMScomplexity transforming into higher level simplicity. Low level High degrees of freedom resulting in high degrees of “self- organization.” Disorder, destabilization and the movement away from equilibrium as a prerequisite to the emergence of higher order form. Small changes having large effects Having a design and a process plunge into chaos only to experience the organizations “core identity” interacting with the environment to produce a stunning new form of order. Experiencing how positive feedback on a “fluctuation” compounded through several iterations can produce an outcome that could not even have been imagined at the outset.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  11. 11. THE STRANGE ATTRACTOR The system has infinite possibilities, wandering wherever it pleases, sampling new configurations of itself. But its wandering and experiments respect a boundary.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  12. 12. THE STRANGE ATTRACTOR The system has infinite possibilities, wandering wherever it pleases, sampling new configurations of itself. But its wandering and experiments respect a boundary.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  13. 13. THE STRANGE ATTRACTOR The system has infinite possibilities, wandering wherever it pleases, sampling new configurations of itself. But its wandering and experiments respect a boundary.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  14. 14. THE STRANGE ATTRACTOR The system has infinite possibilities, wandering wherever it pleases, sampling new configurations of itself. But its wandering and experiments respect a boundary.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  15. 15. THE STRANGE ATTRACTOR The system has infinite possibilities, wandering wherever it pleases, sampling new configurations of itself. But its wandering and experiments respect a boundary.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  16. 16. THE STRANGE ATTRACTOR The system has infinite possibilities, wandering wherever it pleases, sampling new configurations of itself. But its wandering and experiments respect a boundary.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  17. 17. THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT A small fluctuation may start an entirely new evolution that will drastically change the whole behavior of the macroscopic systemback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  18. 18. SEEDS AND GERMS The “germ” is the point where the amplification takes place. A germ is the point from which the creative seed flowers.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  19. 19. POSITIVE / NEGATIVE FEEDBACK Simple information can complexify into new forms just by being fed back on itself -A process of “evolving feedback”- elaborate levels of differentiation and scaling are createdback introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  20. 20. “LAWS” OF EMERGENT PROCESS Catalyze….Motivate….Cultivate…….YES! Predict….Control….Manipulate…….NO!back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
  21. 21. The Design Dynamic: IMPLICATIONS What we will do…. We will be your Guide through the landscape of Emergent Process. What’s the payoff…. Running an Emergent Process will move the system to it’s highest adaptive capability.back introduction r&d tools & techniques case studies new platform design dynamic i
