Slidecast on Antifragile Systems, Innovation, and Learning Organizations

Here is a slidecast version of the talk I gave at BPM Next in March.  In 14 minutes it explains the core ideas of antifragility and how learning organizations are antifragile.  Mixed in are some surprising details about adaptive systems.  This presentation will help explain why a traditional model-and-automate approach is the wrong thing for an innovative, learning organization.

Here is the link to the video.

  1. Resilience seems to be much like antifragility… it’s not a new word and it also refers to a property of systems that are adaptable and become stronger from being stressed (exercised). Check it out on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resilience_(disambiguation)

      That is quite interesting. There are a couple of meanings, and I had always thought of resilience meaning: “This coping may result in the individual “bouncing back” to a previous state of normal functioning, or simply not showing negative effects.” (quoting from Wikipedia). However, there is another meaning: “Resilience is a dynamic process whereby individuals exhibit positive behavioral adaptation when they encounter significant adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or even significant sources of stress,” (also Wikipedia). Particularly this idea of Post Traumatic Growth Syndrome which is clearly antifragile. I may have to try to see if this word works with others. Thanks.
