A system is an object made up by a set of parts among which some form of relationship is stablished. The relationship articulates the parts in a unit, which is precisely the system.
1st Stop – A system is an object, we can treat it as a unit, it is in fact a unit. The only difference with classical objects, the ones we are used to, is the fact that we don’t detect systems straight through the senses, we have to think them.
So we have complexity, one of these things you can’t control; you just deal with it, or you don’t.
And then, are we tackling complexity? Yes, we are. We do consider complexity more often one may think. We manage complexity whenever we take into account more than one variable, more than one single indicator, historic perspective and long term view, whether as a corporate manager, as an individual, as a coach, or as a console player (think for a second in the difference between Pong tennis of the 70’s Atari and current FIFA15 for any of the consoles, including such a parameters as team chemistry!).
Etymologically, the term ‘complexity’ means braiding or binding opposites (two warriors or two lovers entwined). Today, complexity refers to a broad spectrum of phenomena and is approached from various disciplines, although there is no agreed definition of it.
This post is an invitation to embark on a journey through the three ideas that are at the core of the content of this blog.
The starting point is ‘integration’. Integration is also the tool or weapon. Integration to find answers and move ahead.
