Complexity

We can learn to see it as an opportunity rather than a threat. It is possible to train yourself to feel part of a creative process that can influence without controlling it unilaterally. It is very efficient for the systemic management to become agents of change and achieve sustainable results. In any learning approach with systemic perspective is today more necessary than ever because the complexity overwhelms us:-have ability to create more information than anyone can absorb. -An interdependence which is very difficult to manage are being encouraged. -Also it is very difficult to follow the speed of the changes that we are promoting.

-This escalation of complexity is unprecedented in our history. The complexity can be of two types: the dynamics and detail with many varieties. Dynamic complexity occurs because systems change occurs at different time scales and these scales sometimes interact. In the dynamic complexity the cause and the effect are not coming in time or space. You can only understand the effects of a storm contemplating its elements in its entirety.

Never understand it if you do it individually. All these events are separated in space and time. But they are all connected. Each one influences the other. Although, on many occasions, this influence is not evident. The same applies in any organization and all personal, social, business and ecological behaviors. Invisible wefts are interlinked and may take time to produce mutual effects. As we ourselves are part of this warp it is very difficult to see the patterns of change. We tend to focus on isolated parts of the system. We see only snapshots. The majority of our deeper problems are not resolved in this way. The systemic perspective offers a conceptual framework where the overall patterns are clearer, helps us to modify them and see, at the same time, the parties and their subtle interactions.
