If you are reading this, chances are good that you have experienced the sphere of interactions that Edgar Morin is referring to: the complex dynamics that account for the divergence of results from intentions.
We believe that off-the-shelf templates and canvases do not adequately assist us in steering complexity towards desired results. We have identified two main limitations of such approaches:
- They do not perceive the systemic inter-relations, nor do they address the contextual nuances from which the complex web of interactions arise.
- They do not serve as a conduit for intuition and creativity; the two prime ingredients in decision making under uncertainty and complexity.
