  • Diversity in the System

    What are the differences between the individual elements and their behaviors inside the system? How do those differences affect system overall?

  • Long Pathways and Feedback Loops

    What are the results of our attempts to change a system? Sometimes the results are very quick and direct, and closely match what we wanted to accomplish. But sometimes the results are very surprising. "Unintended consequences" and feedback loops are both fixtures in complex systems.

  • Adaptive Systems

    Complexity is hard enough, but an "Adaptive" system adds another level of difficulty. Adaptive systems change over time, usually in response to competitive pressures that change the systems' structure and composition. How do we deal with adaptive systems?
