Irving Wladawsky-Berger: Design Principles for Complex, Unpredictable, People Oriented Systems

April 13, 2012 Comments Off on Irving Wladawsky-Berger: Design Principles for Complex, Unpredictable, People Oriented Systems

These are the standard approaches underlying classic engineering and management, as taught in universities and practiced in business and government. But, they do not work so well when dealing with highly complex systems with fast changing, interacting components, where it is much less clear what is going on in the present, let alone how things will evolve into the future. We need different principles and processes to address this class of highly complex problems, many based on disruptive innovations which we have not encountered before. This is where we need to turn to holistic thinking to pull together everything we know about the problem, and to creativity to try to make sense of what is going on and come up with a working, satisfying solution. This is where we enter the world of design.

Since getting my iPod Touch last month I have started walking more and listening to podcasts. I love all the stuff I’m learning while I walk over to Starbucks. I had always been aware of podcasts before but had never really gotten into them until I started walking 2 or 3 times a week.

My current favourites are:

I’ve read about people abandoning their laptops and desktops after getting an iPad but I never expected that would happen to me when I got an iPod Touch.

Here is my set-up so far:
