Principles

Dave Snowden:

"True preparedness requires us to create structures designed to cope with future not past uncertainty; we can learn from that past, but it does not constrain or contain the future. So in this series of posts I will look at how we do this under the headings of my three principles of complexity based management namely:

  • The use of finely grained objects (this will be two posts, one on organisation objects, the other on information & narrative)
  • Distributed cognition, creating and using human sensor setworks
  • Disintermediation which means enabling the direct contact between decision maker (which can be a ritualised collective identity as well as an individual or committee) and raw material without interpretative layers."
