Managing self-organizational dynamics to compete in complexity
Vi segnalo la pubblicazione dei paper presentati in occasione del Congresso Nazionale dell’Associazione Italiana per la Ricerca sui Sistemi (AIRS) del 2010. Il volume, pubblicato da World Scientific, si intitola “Methods, Models, simulations and approaches towards a general theory of change”, Proceedings of Fifth National Conference on System Science, (Minati G., Abram M., Pessa E.), 2012.
Il mio contributo al volume si intitola “Managing the self-organizational dynamics to compete in complexity”.
Di seguito l’abstract del mio articolo:
“Since the beginning of modern industry, the management’s answer to the growing turbulence of the markets was the reduction of complexity through the institution of procedures, modelization and obsession for control. In this context organization shows a hierarchical-pyramidal organization featuring top-down functioning logics. This kind of management determines the arising of passive behaviours and dependency from the leader. In order to compete in a complex, discontinuous environment, companies must absorb complexity, enhance and govern the emergence of self-organizational logics inside the company itself, developing an increased resilience. This article aims at describing how companies can enhance self-organization and emergent strategic dynamics. After reviewing multidisciplinary studies in biology (autopoietic systems and genome redundancy), in physics (non-equilibrium thermodynamics), in cybernetics (self-regulation), in cognitive sciences (genetic epistemology), in the history of thought and after the evident affirmation of heterarchic dynamics in the market and in society, this work wants to present the bases for rethinking the management role and the concept of leadership, in order to be able to compete in complexity.”
