To demonstrate the inter-connectedness that occurs at just about every level of our existence and to understand what Einstein meant (below) please “take 5” for this presentation.
“I wouldn’t give a nickel for the simplicity on this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity.” Albert Einstein
Reducing complexity: Looking at the “big picture” – the macro or system view – makes it easier to deal with the small problems – to micro manage.
Micro managing without, first, establishing the the inter-connections and potential impact is adding complexity.
Informed business [risk] decisions NEED a quantitative system view. Ontonix clients don’t feel overwhelmed when faced with complex problems.
Ecologist Eric Berlow doesn’t feel overwhelmed when faced with complex systems. He knows that more information can lead to a better, simpler solution. Illustrating the tips and tricks for breaking down big issues, he distils an overwhelming infographic on U.S. strategy in Afghanistan to a few elementary points.
