Embracing complexity : strategic perspectives for an age of turbulence by Jean G Boulton( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book describes what it means to say the world is complex and explores what that means for managers, policy makers and individuals. The first part of the book is about the theory and ideas of complexity. This is explained in a way that is thorough but not mathematical. It compares differing approaches, and also provides a historical perspective, showing how such thinking has been around since the beginning of civilisation. It emphasises the difference between a complexity worldview and the dominant mechanical worldview that underpins much of current management practice. It defines the complexity worldview as recognising the world is interconnected, shaped by history and the particularities of context. The comparison of the differing approaches to modelling complexity is unique in its depth and accessibility. The second part of the book uses this lens of complexity to explore issues in the fields of management, strategy, economics, and international development. It also explores how to facilitate others to recognise the implications of adopting a complex rather than a mechanical worldview and suggests methods of research to explore systemic, path-dependent emergent aspects of situations. The authors of this book span both science and management, academia and practice, thus the explanations of science are authoritative and yet the examples of changing how you live and work in the world are real and accessible. The aim of the book is to bring alive what complexity is all about and to illustrate the importance of loosening the grip of a modernist worldview with its hope for prediction, certainty and control.--

Self-organization and dissipative structures : applications in the physical and social sciences by W. C Schieve( Book )

8 editions published between 1982 and 2021 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributions to this volume attempt to apply different aspects of Ilya Prigogine's Nobel-prize-winning work on dissipative structures to nonchemical systems as a way of linking the natural and social sciences. They address both the mathematical methods for description of pattern and form as they evolve in biological systems and the mechanisms of the evolution of social systems, containing many variables responding to subjective, qualitative stimuli. The mathematical modeling of human systems, especially those far from thermodynamic equilibrium, must involve both chance and determinism, aspects both quantitative and qualitative. Such systems (and the physical states of matter which they resemble) are referred to as self-organized or dissipative structures in order to emphasize their dependence on the flows of matter and energy to and from their surroundings. Some such systems evolve along lines of inevitable change, but there occur instances of choice, or bifurcation, when chance is an important factor in the qualitative modification of structure. Such systems suggest that evolution is not a system moving toward equilibrium but instead is one which most aptly evokes the patterns of the living world. The volume is truly interdisciplinary and should appeal to researchers in both the physical and social sciences. Based on a workshop on dissipative structures held in 1978 at the University of Texas, contributors include Prigogine, A. G. Wilson, Andre de Palma, D. Kahn, J. L. Deneubourgh, J. W. Stucki, Richard N. Adams, and Erick Jantsch. The papers presented include Allen, "Self-Organization in the Urban System"; Robert Herman, "Remarks on Traffic Flow Theories and the Characterization of Traffic in Cities"; W. H. Zurek and Schieve, "Nucleation Paradigm: Survival Threshold in Population Dynamics"; De Palma et al., "Boolean Equations with Temporal Delays"; Nicholas Georgescu-Roegin, "Energy Analysis and Technology Assessment"; Magoroh Maruyama, "Four Different Causal Meta-types in Biological and Social Sciences"; and Jantsch, "From Self-Reference to Self-Transcendence: The Evolution of Self-Organization Dynamics."
Evolutionary dynamics and sustainable development : a systems approach by Norman Clark( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in English and Italian and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Evolutionary Dynamics and Sustainable Development Norman Clark, Francisco Perez-Trejo and Peter Allen offer a new approach which emphasises the evolutionary nature of socio-economic systems. Their discussion includes the use of decision tools which can simultaneously handle spatial and temporal evolution. This major book begins with a critical evaluation of conventional economic approaches to development planning and then explores how modern general systems theory can show economic development as a process of structural change. The authors then develop a model which they explore through case studies of both Senegal and Crete. The model is combined with risk analysis to show how it can be used in computer-based scenarios, before its properties as an aid to decision making are summarised in the last chapter
Cities and regions as self-organizing systems : models of complexity by Peter M Allen( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book gives a clear methodological and philosophical introduction to complexity theory as applied to urban and regional systems and contains a detailed series of modelling case studies compiled over the past couple of decades. Based on the new complex systems thinking, mathematical models are developed which attempt to simulate the evolution of towns, cities and regions and the complicated co-evolutionary interaction there is both between and within them." "This innovative text will be an invaluable guide to the complex systems approach for urban and rural planners and graduate and advanced undergraduate geography students studying spatial modelling."--BOOK JACKET
Productivity, competitiveness and incomes in Asia : an evolutionary theory of international trade by Hans-Peter Brunner( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors of this book link productivity change, trade competitiveness, networks of interaction and cooperation and income growth in developing Asian countries with the complex evolutionary processes of economic development and international trade. They take an innovative approach to simulating the complex micro-dynamics of competitiveness in order to distinguish those trade-related microeconomic dynamics and institutional reforms vital to leading countries out of institutional and poverty traps." "Productivity, Competitiveness and Incomes in Asia will be of interest to academics and researchers in Asian Studies, industrial economics, evolutionary economics and international business development. The book will also appeal to policy makers responsible for economic growth."--Jacket
Integrative systems approaches to natural and social dynamics : systems science 2000 by Michael Matthies( )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and German and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the start of the new millennium, mankind is challenged by a paradox: the greater the apparent knowledge becomes, the greater the uncertainty in understanding and predicting how the world works appears. This book presents the outline of a new basis of Systems Science and a methodology for its applications in complex environmental, economic, social, and technological systems

Prédiction des résultats de la R&D coopérative en Europe : compétences collectives et cultures = utcome predictors of co-operative R&D in Europe =organisational capabilities and cultures by Laurent Zibell( Book )

2 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette recherche porte sur l'influence des compétences collectives et cultures des deux partenaires sur les résultats de projets coopératifs de R&D. Les contributions théoriques sont (1) une justification de l'existence de compétences collectives et de 'visions du monde', (2) une typologie parcimonieuse des 'visions du monde' et (3) une méthode de mesure des compétences collectives. L'enquête porte sur 514 projets dans l'industrie électronique, en Allemagne, France, Finlande et au Royaume-Uni. Elle recueille 120 réponses complètes, correspondant chacune aux réponses de deux chefs de projets appariés ayant coopéré sur un même projet. Elle porte sur les conséquences collectives de l'organisme, sur celles de son partenaire, sur sa 'vision du monde' et sur les résultats du projet. Aucun des facteurs explicatifs traditionnels (distance géographique, différence de nationalité, de taille, de statut juridique, comptabilité stratégique) n'a d'influence significative, sur aucun des résultats considérés (sauf un). Les facteurs explicatifs introduits (compétences collectives et 'vision du monde') ont une influence significative sur la quasi-totalité des résultats considérés des projets coopératifs de R&D: atteinte de résultats concrets, conformité avec le budget et le calendrier, création et transfert de connaissances, apprentissage (modification des compétences). Des effets de diversité culturelle, de 'capacité absorptive', d'enseignement, sélectifs selon les compétences concernées, sont mis en évidence. Ces résultats valident empiriquement la compétence collective et la 'vision du monde' comme descripteurs de l'hétérogénéité entre organismes ainsi que leur méthode de mesure
