One of the biggest challenges for Enterprises today is dealing with constant and rapid change happening all around them. The change is so disruptive that no Enterprise, regardless of age and size, can take their survival for granted. However, nature and humans have dealt with change very effectively since time immemorial. Systems like Weather, Economies and even the Human Body are highly adaptable to a rapidly changing environments. These systems, known as Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS), have grown resilient by thriving on change.
So when we have systems all around us which are effectively dealing with Change, can Enterprises learn from CAS about dealing with change. The answer is a resounding 'Yes'! While adopting Agile Values and Principles are helping organizations not only cope with change but also leverage it, the understanding of CAS and how they deal with change will certainly help Enterprises enhance Agility.

Learning Outcomes:
  • 1. Understand the model of Complex Adaptive Systems (CAS), and how they deal with change effectively
  • 2. Learn the similarities between 21st Century Enterprises and CAS
  • 3. Gain insights about the characteristics of CAS
  • 4. Learn the difference between 'Complicated' and Complex', and how the 'Complicated' model is an impediment to Enterprise Agility
  • 5. Understand how Enterprises can deal with the challenges arising from Change and enhance Enterprise Agility, by adopting the CAS model
